Premiere: Boston’s Kal Marks Channel Psychological Horror Films In Their Epic Video For ‘Loosed’

03.08.18 9 months ago

Last month, Boston experimental noise trio Kal Marks returned with their third full-length record Universal Care, marking a large step forward for the band, both lyrically and sonically. It’s at the same time sludgy and peppy, colorful and drab. Right at the center of record lies the seven-minute epic called “Loosed,” a perfect embodiment of Universal Care that touches all points of the band’s abilities.

Today, we’re premiering the video for “Loosed,” which sees the band channeling the stylistic overtones of psychological horror films, cutting between performance footage, grinding teeth, and other deranged imagery. The visual was directed by the band’s longtime collaborator Ethan Long, and is a perfect visual summation of a song that moves flawlessly from place to place. Check it out above.
