Destruction Unit: "Sonic Pearl" Video

It's a dizzying experience to watch the video for "Sonic Pearl," the A-side from Destruction Unit’s upcoming Two Strong Hits 7" on Suicide Squeeze. With wavering, layered images and a near-constant glare of the sun, staring at these pictures leads to a feeling close to severe dehydration. The camera follows the band through the desert, staggering in what seems like the point of view of a straggler who’s desperate to catch up, impaired by too much sun, but fueled by the driving sound. When the disorientation stops, we witness an ominous tableau-- it’s not clear what might happen next, but then it’s over, like the trembling person through whose eyes we saw has finally passed out.

Two Strong Hits is out July 16 and available to pre-order now from Suicide SqueezeDeep Trip, the latest LP from Destruction Unit, is out August 20 on Sacred Bones. Destruction Unit will be playing alongside Merchandise and Milk Music this Saturday (June 15) at 285 Kent in Brooklyn, tix available here. You can peep their other tour dates after the jump.
