Warpaint have previewed their forthcoming album Radiate Like This with a new single called ‘Stevie’. The track arrives alongside a video created in collaboration with Fascinated By Everything, an art and technology collective created by Chris Holmes. You can watch the fully immersive video (made for Oculus) as well as the 2D version below.
“’Stevie’ is a love song, pure and true,” the band said in a statement. “Sincere as it comes with a little bit of Freak. A cosmic celebration of the thing we all look for in life. And our contribution to one of the most beloved song genres.”
“Thinking of visuals for ‘Stevie’ we weren’t seeing a story or a performance, but a kind of ‘Tunnel Of Love’ image kept coming to my head, more like waves of serotonin, what love feels like,” Warpaint’s Emily Kokal commented on the video. “Right around that time Chris showed us what he was working on and it was like, ‘Woah, this is way more ‘Tunnel Of Love’ than we could’ve imagined!’”
“All of the visuals are made from physical objects, so all of the light color and texture come from the real world and not just computer-generated graphics,” Holmes added. “It’s been such a joy to work with one of my favorite bands, Warpaint and collaborate to make some inter-dimensional kaleidoscopic beauty to radiate some love and light into this world.”
