As an organization that ingests countless music videos on a daily basis, even we were struck momentarily dumb by electropop outfit Emil & Friends’ clip for “Crystal Ball”. What we do know is that it was shot in a number of worldly locales, most notably Bali, Sulawesi, Brooklyn, NY, Buffalo, NY, and East Aurora, NY. From there, our grasp escapes us as suddenly a barrage of imagery unfolds, including frontman Emil Hewitt dressed as a white Bengal tiger, models that spit fire, masked tribal dancers krumpin’, and a giant, floating eyeball being murdered. On the bright side, at least there are loads of shiny colors to be enjoyed. Watch it below.
The group’s latest album, Lo & Behold, is out now via Cantora Records.
