Psychic Ills Bring an Alien to New York in ‘See You There’ Video

psychic ills, see you there, video

Psychic Ills re-entered our orbit back in February with One Track Mind, an album SPIN’s David Bevan described as “a far crisper but no less seductive” follow-up to 2011’s Hazed Dream LP. Now the art-rock squad have dispatched an official video for “See You There,” a churning psych-garage highlight from their latest full-length. Directed by singer-guitarist Tres Warren, the black-and-white clip follows an extraterrestrial who took a wrong turn on the way to Roswell and landed in the Big Apple. 

Warren summed the short up to the Quietus, saying, “It’s that story people are talking about: Is there other life out there? I’m more interested in what they’re gonna make of the place when they get here. It’s sort of a Twilight Zone-inspired story of an alien in NYC. As he surveys the situation, he encounters members of the band and in the end he’s eventually captured by, who else? Hawaiian shirt-wearing FBI types.”
