Last month, Caleb Landry Jones announced his new album, Gadzooks, Vol. 1, for release on September 24th on Sacred Bones. Today he returns with “The Loon,” the follow-up to lead single, “Bogie.”
“The Loon” is another acid-soaked preview of Gadzooks Vol 1. accompanied by a music video directed, shot and edited by Jones’ regular collaborator Jacqueline Castel. In the video Jones assumes the role of a renaissance clown seated at a vanity, both examining himself and inhabiting the surreal reflection before him. “Your world’s not like mine, though my eyes are yours,” Jones sings in a falsetto. “The Loon” doubles down on its idiosyncrasies, with Jones describing “rings of fire and time” just before the track reaches its climax.
Castel describes “The Loon” video as: “Part dream, part nightmare, The Loon is a psychedelic portrait of the multiple identities and inter-dimensional realities that exist inside oneself – a subconscious circus of the sublime and the grotesque.”
