Let Acid Dad Fry Your Frontal Lobe with Video for New Track “Living With a Creature”

Acid Dad, the NYC psych-punk group that made Paste’s list of Big Apple-based bands to know in 2018, have shared the video for “Living With a Creature,” their first new song since the release of their debut self-titled album in March. The track will drop on streaming and physical platforms on Oct. 26 through Greenway.

If you’re in need of a real, honest, salt-of-the-earth thrasher to round out your art-punk Halloween playlist, look no further than the sludgy psychedelia of “Living With a Creature.” It thumps, it jumps and it’ll keep you bumping all through the night with singer Vaughn Hunt’s exhortations of being “stuck in the walls,” riding on a wave of ferocious fuzz in the vein of Ty Segall or Oh Sees.

It might be a good idea to rig up a projector and throw on the music video for your party guests, too, while you’re at it. Directed by Sztuka Naiwna, the video for “Living With a Creature” melds Max Headroom with childhood fever-dream imagery and ends up a colorful two-minute trip down the mind-rotting rabbit hole, which is just about the best mood-setter for the devil’s night you’re gonna find. Try it out. See what happens.
