“Bazaar is a thrilling piece of dark pop” – The 405
HUW STEPHEN ALBUM OF THE WEEK ON BBC RADIO 1
Wizards, Lazy Private Detectives, Tandem Bikes, and Rollerblades…
Portland psych-rockers WAMPIRE, have released a new video for ‘Wizard Staff’, the first single from their forthcoming album ‘Bazaar’.
The psychedelic and surreal video is full of wizards, lazy private detectives, tandem bikes, and roller blades. The video shows detectives Tinder and Phipps hot on the trail of an elusive wizard, who is hiding out in a cinema at a screening of ‘Sax Addiction’.
Featuring laid-back instrumentation, and some seriously seductive sax, the surreal and psychedelic ‘Wizard Staff’ is the perfect soundtrack to such escapades. A turn away from the bands more commonly known B-movie horror-esque imagery; this is the new and improved WAMPIRE, sonically mature, but just as silly at heart.
‘Wizard Staff’ is available below
WAMPIRE will also be touring in the EU/UK this Nov/Dec (including a UK Mac DeMarco support date), please see below for full tour dates and further info…
