The Spyrals just released a music video for "Out of Sight," the title track off of their latest LP, and like the two minute and fifty-second song, its a raw aesthetic approach that encapsulates the band's distinctive style and where it lands on the broad spectrum of "psych" music. It's captivating but not disorienting, stripped down to the necessities but far from boring. The band plugs into the sand, black and white shots battle it out with highly saturated ones, clips of tilt-shifted waves roll in and out in reverse--it's built with subtle bricks that aren't trippy in a kaleidoscopic, hallucinogenic sense, but rather in a way that makes you want to keep watching and listening. And you will.
