Coming back to they Bay Area from their East Coast arena tour with Tool, Once & Future Band have a new video for their second single — “Rolando” — off of their debut self-titled album “Once & Future Band”(Castle Face Records). The band will be celebrating the release tomorrow night at the Independent.
A nostalgic ’80s nod, the video for “Rolando,” directed by visual artist Andy Puls, was created using ’80s standard definition video hardware and no computers. Material for the video, according tothe band, was generated using video feedback and footage of Joel Robinow singing along. The result? A psychedelic blast of visuals accompanied by the melodic trip that is Once & Future Band. It’s fun, dancey, and the kind of stuff that Once & Future Band has made a name for themselves for creating — a slight mix of decades of musical genres and textures from the ’70s and ’80s combined with the modern-day stylings of bands like Tame Impala and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Check out the video below (and enjoy the ride).
The band will be playing tomorrow night at the Independent with Los Angeles-based band Pink Mountaintops and Bay Area favorite Meernaa. THe show will also feature DJ sets by Kelley Stoltz (who just dropped his newest album) and Allyson Baker.
