Quelle Chris‘ sarcastically named Innocent Country is set to release July 10, and the project’s second single, “Where the Wild Thing Roam,” has produced a visual just as creepy as the book its title is influenced by.
I’ve gotta be real: Where The Wild Things Are scared the shit out of me. When I went to a girl’s house with a couple friends to watch the Spike Jonze film based on the book, I pretended to sleep. I couldn’t do it. They are legitimately one of the few things that make me genuinely uncomfortable look at for more than a minute. That being said, Chris’ video for the ominous song gave me the same head-turn I remember having with Where The Wild Things Are.
Set in a dark room with nothing but a flashlight shined on him and his friends donned in masks and headgear, Chris raps the bars to the track while the light bears fruit to their outfits. I won’t willingly watch the video again (now that you know my fears, you should understand), but I like the song, and you can stream it below.
Watch the visual above, and pre-order Chris’ Innocent Country on Bandcamp.
