With its psychedelic groove and rich production style, Kid Bloom's latest single and music video is a truly infectious display of the rising musician's star power.
"EVRWNDR" is a vibey cut off of Kid Bloom's recently released Lemondhead EP––a collection of six tracks that offers his most refined sound yet as the follow-up to his 2017 LP, A Long Kiss Goodbye. Today, Popdust has the pleasure of premiering the new track's music video.
Working under the moniker Kid Bloom, LA-based musician Lennon Kloser has been steadily churning out lushly arranged tunes that fuse together psych and indie pop to create an instantly captivating sound. Recently, he's come into a fully-realized psych-pop sound rounded out by more intricate arrangements and instrumental experimentation. On "EVRWNDR," Kloser's rich vocals resonate over a dreamy swirl of synths, as a robust drum beat drives the track forward. It's one of the more vulnerable tracks on the EP, showcasing Kloser's lyrical and sonic range.
The Jack Begert-directed video finds Kloser in what appears to be waking up from a bad dream, or at the very least a pretty rough night. Set against the neon glow of a house party, the visuals focus on Kloser sitting alone amongst the crowd. Inspired by Kloser's "hypersensitivity to emotions," "EVRWNDR" explores how alienating and paralyzing our emotions can render us.
Here's what Kloser had to say about the video: "Jack (director) and I were sitting on top of my roof smoking a joint one day when we came up with the concept for this video. I always loved Goosebumps when I was younger, so the visuals and mystery throughout the video was inspired by my love for the series."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.

What a supressive time it was
Love is a beautiful thing.
But the concept of love in and of itself turns humans into the most cliche versions of themselves. The grief of heartache, in particular, is uniquely transformative, breaking down humans of all shapes into feral cretins. The heartbroken human will cry at random intervals in the Trader Joe's check out line after spotting all the last minute snacks they and their lover used to throw into the shopping cart "just for fun." The heartbroken human will take up new hobbies like Ship-In-A-Bottle or Tennis that never have lasting power. Most importantly, the heartbroken human will yearn–oh how they yearn–for a companion.
