UNDER THE RADAR: Foxygen Have a New Video for “Upon a Hill”.
Foxygen often blows a lot of their work out.The psych-rock outfit are totally comfortable crafting an album more than an hour long. The band will record six-minute tracks and musical suites that run several songs. Maximalism, in some ways, is the band’s calling card.
That said, “Upon a Hill,” from the band’s new album Hang, is short and to the point, and so too is the new video for the minute-plus track. There’s little more to see here than some goofy dancehall theatrics and red-stained shots of creepy toys crowding the screen. From a band who so often go to 11, it’s refreshing to see a touch of restraint.
