Premiere: Opossum, “Getaway Tonight”

Kody Nielson is the former frontman of The Mint Chicks, and his new project Opossum is a poppy delicacy straight from the mouth of the psychedelic teen canon. You can imagine his guitar up high, crooning into a microphone in front of screaming girls, but that's not what happens in this video; instead, he is in a clean room with a bunch of antiquated technology, being a space android. The image of the all-seeing eye is reflected everywhere; on screens, in his space helmet, and in the black hole itself.

Opossum's record Electric Hawaii is out August 7th on Fire Records and they are touring the US around CMJ time.
