Chicago’s Secret Colours burst out of the Windy City last year with a self-titled debut LP filled with enough woozy psychedelic energy to freak out Timothy Leary. Following that release, they put out a string of singles via their Bandcamp, including an ambitious cover of “Tomorrow Never Knows” by The Beatles. Secret Colours’ vintage flower punk is sure to draw comparisons to groups like The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine) has helped them hone their sound in all of its drug-infused glory.
On January 1st, the group will release a five-song collection entitled EP3. “Faust” is the lead track off that effort and is accompanied by a vampire-friendly music video. Directed by Elijah Alvarado, the clip follows the band as they prepare and attempt to hold up a liquor store. Things take a turn for the ridiculously unexpected when the cashier turns out to be a fanged, bloodthirsty creature of the night. Check out the ensuing carnage below (or at Cluster 1), followed by the EP tracklist.
