Beautiful/Decay and premiere website building platform Made With Color have joined forces once again to bring you exclusive artist features. Each week we join forces to bring you some of the most exciting artists and designers who use Made With Color to create their clean and sleek websites. This week we’re excited to bring you the mind-altering and dreamlike music video by Brian Irving.
“Eyes Wide” is the new single and video from Brian Irving, aka Brian Brater, the co-founder of the legendary Rawkus Records (Black Star, Talib Kweli, Pharoah Monch, Company Flow, Big L and more) and responsible for developing artists like Frank Ocean collaborator Om’mas Keith, Dr. Luke and for starting the media network and website Uproxx.com.
Irving’s first release is a lush conscious neo-psychedelic experience, drawing comparisons to Tame Impala and Pink Floyd. His debut album Radiant Things is set for a July 16 release date featuring cover art by one of our favorite painters Wendell Gladstone. The video, produced by Los Angeles design agency Something In The Universe is inspired by the psychedelic energy of Captain Murphy and Tampa Impala videos as well as the imagery and style of assume vivid astro focus and London’s 14 Hour Technicolor Dream.
Irving has to say this about his new video, “The ‘Eyes Wide’ animation and drawings have a beautiful lucid dream-like quality, like an amazing planetarium light show, or an assume vivid astro focus video or installation. The song beautifully complements the video: both the imagery and music are soaked with delays and reverb-like quality – the symbolic imagery of open spaces, one-eyed fantasy, and psychedelic big fish perfectly reflect the “wet” yet dynamic sound of my guitar/synth processing and pulsing electric bass lines.”
