Peel Dream Magazine – Pictionary [Music Video]

Today the Los Angeles based act Peel Dream Magazine dropped the music video for Pictionary.
The second single is taken from the upcoming third album from the same name which comes out on October 7, 2022 via Slumberland Records & Tough Love.
Another dreamy retro vibe poppy tune.

About the track by the artist’s statement:
“I co-directed this video with my talented friend Clayton McCracken, a prominent video artist in LA specializing in live visuals.
We filmed the entire thing in his living room, although it feels more like an elaborate stage when you watch it.

The song is a baroque ode to “play” in all forms.
In it, a set of characters experience a mysterious, orgiastic cataclysm while playing a game of Pictionary. The rest is open to interpretation. According to the story of the album, I’ve been exiled from Peel Dream Magazine.
Scenes alternate between me playing the board game, and laboring over a composition.

I’m weaving my own reality, and perhaps the very song itself, in the style of this isolated “tortured artist”. I wanted to channel Herman Melville’s Pierre, which tells this gothic 19th century story of an author who drives himself mad while working on his magnum opus is the true story of his own life.
I love that kind of stuff. It’s also supposed to be a play on the baroque pop element of the new record, which features harpsichord and chamber strings.
I ended up wearing a bunch of Clayton’s clothes that felt very Laurel Canyon 60s LA to me. Oh and look for the missing chunk of the feather pen – it went up in flames from one of the candles during the first take we filmed.” – Joseph Stevens
