Yesterday, local rock 'n' rollers Ultras S/C brought us a music video featuring footage of some literal Kamikazes. Today, Plastic Visions bring us a song and video about a figurative Kamikaze. Plastic Visions is the outfit featuring Kane Stewart and Cage the Elephant's Brad Shultz, and when they first debuted the tune in question — titled, naturally, "Kamikaze" — I called it "a snotty, blown-out, three-minute fuzz-pop burner that lands somewhere in the vicinity of Flaming Lips' psychedelic art rock." The Visions will drop their debut EP next week, but for now, you can see the video (directed by Stewart himself) above.
“'Kamikaze' depicts the femme fatale character," Plastic Visions tell Antiquiet. "Showing the ups and downs of battling with substance abuse and a fascination with the manipulation of seduction.” The video is simple enough: There's some in-mirror preening, some hanging out, some hookah smoke bubbles ... and then, hey surprise, murder! Spoiler alert? My apologies.
