Young Prisms Premiere New Video

Most quotes praising Young Prisms include the words “Psychedelic,” “no-fi” (or “lo-fi,”), refer to the washed-out guitars and mention the band’s sunny Californian origins. All these words come together in the band’s latest video for their song off Friends For Now on Kanine Records, “Breathless,” which premiered this week on Altered Zones. Initially shot by Andrew Creighton, the first draft of the video was brought to Denver to director Trevor Peterson, of Woodsman, who shot added more visuals. Watching this video feels like on long look into a big rocking kaleidoscope.

Experience it for yourself. Watch the video for “Breathless” below:

Weekend Out On The Road

San Francisco- based shoegazin’ trio, Weekend have been described as a band that takes the aggression of punk and filters it through a wall of reverb.

Favorably compared to bands such as No Age, Sonic Youth and Skullflower, the band has already released two sold-out EPs. The band has finished work on their first full length, Sports which is set to be released this upcoming Tuesday,November 9.

Weekend has also released a video from their upcoming album. You can check out “Monday Morning/Monongah, WV” below.
