The returning shoegazeing impresarios ride have shared the new video for their brilliant track ‘Cali’. The song was taken from the band’s returning album Weather Diaries and is every bit as brilliant as you might think.
Expect a romance, expect oceans, expect a psyche twinge but expect it in an entirely different
“’Cali’ is a love song which features imagery of California and the ocean, so a video which features a surfing couple was the perfect fit,” says Andy Bell. “What I love about the video is that it avoids some of the surf film / retro cliches and stays with a contemporary kind of look. The psychedelic nature of the editing is more in line with the Vaporwave aesthetic than 60’s psychedelia. What Niall Trask has come up with got an immediate thumbs up from the entire band and is my favourite Ride video to date”
The band tour the UK in November. Full dates below.
