THEESatisfaction Share New Psychedelic Visuals For "EarthEE" ft. Shabazz Palaces, Erik Blood & Porter Ray
That ever-inventive and genre-defying R&B duo we know as THEESatisfaction is back, bearing brand new visuals for "EarthEE," the title track off their most recent LP. Buttressed by fellow Seattle-dwellers Shabazz Palaces, Erik Blood and Porter Ray, the clip draws us into a deep royal blue universe in which Stas and Cat drift to and fro, cooly delivering their requests for freer minds and more peaceful days. Like the best psychedelic trip you've never taken, it's an ideal way to spend a few minutes detached from the toils of everyday life and right in step with the creative, hazy elements of the THEESatisfaciton catalog.
Stereogum reports that the "EarthEE" video was directed by Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, who called it “a short visual meditation on the textile traditions of home, sacred Geo Metrics, theta based communication and the whirling dervish. A sonically driven work of ancient Afro continuum…” Watch the video below, pick up EarthEEon Sub Pop Records today, and check out the duo's summer tour itinerary, which has them cruising through both Europe and the Pacific Northwest, after the jump. Loosen up your mind.
