Taken from Baleine 3000‘s third record – ‘The Nap‘ – released last year on Brussels’ multiversical outlet Vlek, the dream-pop ballad ‘Gonna Rain‘ makes a return but this time on the screens, with a beautiful music video courtesy of Liège-based artist collective La Supérette.
Recalling the “damp lo-fi days of early Ariel Pink” and Connan Mockasin’s kaleidoscopic musical universe whilst “Illreme’s charismatic imperfections provide a hint of Can’s Damo Suzuki glory days“, the song here finds the perfect visual echo to its colourful palette of gummy riffs and toy-box synths, marrying the dazzling organic beauty of variegated gemstones and mineral lodes with childhood souvenirs of the weird, hard-to-hate Power Rangers’ monster enemies. A much recommended cocktail of audio-visual vitamins to crush the bleak coming-up of the Monday feels.
Shot in Liège on a mining heap by La Supérette.
