Pontiak, “Lack Lustre Rush”

Video by Pontiak

Pontiak, a psych-rock trio of brothers from the Virginia farmland, are coming out with a new album, INNOCENCE, via Thrill Jockey Records. For a decidedly DIY rock outfit that builds its own studios and eschews digital production practices, the band sure knows how to craft a polished sound. Check out the video, made by the band members themselves, for "Lack Lustre Rush," a searing and simple pairing of melodic vocals and fuzzed-over guitar hooks. The high-contrast (but almost all-white) video was shot completely upside-down and features a disoriented cowboy man thrashing around in a towel. They've also just announced a whole slew of new tour dates for the next couple of months, which we've listed below.
