Another brilliant single and video by Ssion who again takes us on a bizarre yet genius journey into the surreal depths of suburbia in Earthquake. We are mesmerized by his visual aesthetic that plays as one part John Waters with one part David Lynch. Ssion himself describes the video as “a coming of age love story between an enigmatic instigator and an alien-brother-lover…” so you know you need to throw all sense of logic aside and sit back and enjoy the ride. The entire video was shot in Ssion’s hometown, Kansas City, which is in itself, its own sort of horror. Enjoy!
When SSION (Cody Critcheloe) describes My Love Grows In the Dark as his experiences being in a sex club, the song takes on delightfully cheecky new meaning. The track will be the lead single off a new album, Bent, out this summer. In the video, Critcheloe walks around a surreal, over-saturated, Tim Burtonesque house with an assortment of colorful characters who are too self-obsessed to take notice of him. We can only imagine that this is similar to the singular experience of feeling your way around a darkened sex club. Watch out for things that go bump in the night.
