The Cape Town awesomeness-generating wonders known as Surfing Looser Space Cult have done it again! The gang's latest creation is a major double whammy; a stellar new Beach Party song and an ace-as-all-hell music video to accompany it.
The song is produced by The Cult's Andrew Esterhuizen (Gateway Drugs, ex-Beach Party). In my books, it's the best sounding thing he's done with Beach Party over their (soon to be) three album career. "I Want To" is the lead single off Album 3 "Ribs or Death" which SLSC will be dropping within the month. Based on how awesome this first song is, I think it's safe to say that I'm more than a little excited to hear what the gang have put together this time around.
In the video, it's great to see the band teaming up with Dylan Culhane again. The results of Dylan and Beach Party's previous adventures were plain awesome and things are no different this time around. The piece is edited by Beach Party's drummer and The Cult's resident moving-image-machine Xander van der Westhuizen. An incredibly beautiful little journey, this video too might be a highlight for Xander who's previous creations with SLSC have been solid gold time and time and time again.
A literal Beach Party featuring parallel-universe versions of a gang of Surfing Looser Space Cult members, the show is frequently stolen by Rocco (of The Dollfins family), but before I get too caught up in talking about puppies let me just present to you:
