ESP‘s musical goal is exactly what its name implies–Extra Sensory Perception. The Los Angeles-based trio explores the phenomenon through synth-based avant-garde pop laden with hyper-colorful visuals.
Case in point: the three-piece’s visual accompaniment for “Serenade.” Directed by Alexandra Pelly, the video is a whirlwind of vibrant color and optical illusion that pays tribute to Yellow Magic Orchestra’s acclaimed 1980 video for “Rydeen.”
The experimental pop outfit is gearing up to self-release an EP tomorrow, August 28, and has a handful of California tour dates coming up. Watch the video for “Serenade” and check out tour dates below.
