“I don’t want to lose you,” Reptar singer/guitarist Graham Ulicny repeats sweetly on “Three Shining Suns,” from the Athens-based electro-pop outfit’s just-released Vagrant debut, Body Faucet. With bass-heavy production from producer Ben Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, Washed Out), the song is as uncanny and glistening as its title suggests, with an Afropop lilt suggestive of Vampire Weekend. The psychedelic woodland video extends the mysterious vibe to include dead bodies, magic rings, explosions, and other supernatural elements. It’s a wild trip. Check out the accompanying music video, directed by Ross Brubeck.
