Open Mike Eagle – “Happy Wasteland Day” (Video)

blame it on Shake November 8, 2017

After celebrating Christmas with those who don’t celebrate Christmas on “Snowsuit” yesterday, Open Mike Eagle is back to reality with a new video from his Brick Body Kids Still Daydream album.

Running with the Exile-laced “Happy Wasteland Day,” the video dives deep into a world where things have gone terribly wrong.

“We’re releasing this video a year to the day of the election of the garbage king,” Mike says. “May our national nightmare end sometime soon.”

Shot in Valencia, CA, the Ryan Calavano-directed clip plays out like a Mad Max fever dream that mirrors reality—showcasing a bleak, satirical, apocalyptic desert world with Open Mike pleading for just “one day without violence.”

Is it possible? Don’t hold your breath.
