It’s been a breakout year for Goodbye June, and one that continues with one of the more trippy videos you’ll see this year. The band teamed up with director Tyler Dunning Evans for their psychedelic new video for the song “Good Side” off their Magic Valley album.
If there’s any doubt about what’s in store, that’s alleviated in the opening seconds when one band member descends to earth while a flock of birds scatter and flowers bloom out of the eyes of the two other band members. The remainder of the clip truly is a psychedelic trip with black light-ready colors, negative photography, multiple Landon Milbourn heads hurtling at the screen and dimensional visual effects that fit well with the video’s overall theme.
As for the song itself, it’s a solid rocker with a steady beat and enough catchy riffs to entice the most hardened rock purists while Milbourn’s foray into his falsetto connects quite well. By the time the song reaches its guitar solo, get ready for the psychedelic vibe to really kick in within the video. The band states, “We wanted the video for ‘Good Side’ to portray the beauty and color of what life and beyond may be. This was the most fun we’ve had shooting a video in a while. Our first voyage in the world of green screen. Enjoy.”
Milbourn and fellow guitarists Brandon Qualkenbush and Tyler Baker have a solid disc on their hands with Magic Valley, and you can pick up the disc via the platform of your choosing here. It also includes their recent favorites “Oh No,” “Darlin'” and “Daisy.”
