Today, via a premiere with booooooom.com, LA pysch pop duo Figs Vision gave us the first look into the world of Fig; a pivotal character in the story behind their upcoming album. The video for “Elle You’re Walking” is a visually stunning, pseudo-psychedelic thriller. It serves as the first chapter to the band’s bizarre yet true story of origination and inspiration. The full tale will be revealed episodically as the songs and videos from their forthcoming album are released, each one centered around a specific character encountered along the way. Watch on Youtube now.
And we begin with Elle…
As Jordan and Gunner put it:
“It was easy to become taken, lost in the idea of somewhere to belong and therefore a great deal of time was spent heaping substance into the desert. Elle is the story, not of why or how but of who. She was a young doe eyed beauty, she was someone. something special. She’s what it took to see what we had become, she meant so much more than any single ounce of self and oh! the love. This is a story about love, this is a story about pain. Excitement and fear – guilt and pleasure – life and death. This is your story, this is our story, this is her story. Elle You’re Walking.”
The track itself sees Jordan Spoliansky’s masterful command of vocal melodies and the ability of he and the other half of the duo, Gunner Sixx, to write infectious hooks laid beautifully over an arrangement of vintage synths, a funky bassline and innovative percussion. Jordan and Gunner have created a beautiful record and to see them live is to be fully immersed in the story they are unveiling with their upcoming album. The band will be headlining The Satellite in Los Angeles tonight (5/26), If you are in the area, this will be an experience that you will not want to miss.
“This true story begins as it ended, with the most formative years and influential people we’ve yet to encounter. We are ready to give you everything and we’ll start here”. – Figs Vision
