Visual Vices: Sex Park - "Rhyme or Reason"

Post-punk duo Sex Park have remained relatively under the radar with how much they project themselves into the spotlight, but that by no means intimates they aren't deserving of the limelight. In just the two years they've existed the darkwave faction are quickly positioning themselves highly amongst their local contemporaries. With formerly their self-titled debut to offer insight into their creations, they're back at it again with a new video as another teaser to a new album.

"Rhyme or Reason" is the second track to come off their early 2018 full length Atrium. The album was originally scheduled for summer of this year but instead the pair, made of Daniel Blumenthal on guitar and vocals and Paul Burkhart heading synths and drum machines, released one track from it titled "Dignity." To take the buzz a step further, Sex Park released the Dignity - Remixes, which consists of Lust Era, Nathan Stewart and Memory Clap Acid doing their renditions of the track. 

"Rhyme or Reason" is where it's at, though, especially its video. Its aesthetics are mistily on brand with the musical style typically proffers; images of static feedback, flowers and other indecipherable bits mirroring in mesmerizing scene sequences. The video is very easy to get lost in, as it seems will be the rest of Atrium.

Watch the visuals for "Rhyme or Reason" below, and be sure to catch Sex Park's next show at Dante's on 12.22 with Shadowhouse, The Secret Light and White Rooms.

Visual Vices: Atomic Candles - "Do (Live)"

There's someting hypnotic about watching bands perform. Audience members and viewers can zone out in watching the meditative motions of instrument playing and sometimes mesmeric singing, but not every show allows for such reflective instances. Being able to experience them at home can be much better, and the new Atomic Candles video offers up those vibes.

The duo, consisting of Matt B. and Ryan W., released a live video of them performing their song "Do" in their practice space. It gives a more intimate look at two goth pop musicians doing what they do best with a synth, a guitar and two pairs of pretty sweet headphones.

If you can't get enough of them through their video performance, you can catch Atomic Candles on June 7 with White Rooms and Sex Park at the Know.
