Ariel Pink has released the video for his latest single 'Dayzed Inn Daydreams', the next instalment in a series of videos directed by LA-based filmmaker Grant Singer.
Following on from promos for pom pom tracks 'Put Your Number In My Phone' and 'Picture Me Gone', 'Dayzed Inn Daydreams' finds Singer continuing to explore the mundanity and bliss of suburban American life. The central role is performed by Rick Wilder (from cult punk band The Mau-Mau's), with the video including a cameo appearance from Ariel. The video was co-produced by Urban Outfitters as the 21st instalment of their UO Music Video Series, and you can see exclusive behind the scenes photos here. You can see the full list of credits here.
In Grant's words, "it's the story of a man, played by Rick Wilder, who was once the frontman of a band that existed decades ago. Through a series of scenes depicting his everyday life, we tell his story."
'Dayzed Inn Daydreams' is the closing track from pom pom, Pink's 17-track magnum opus released late last year. The track features Spiritualized's Jason Pierce on guitar.
