NVDES SHARES “MIND BODY SOUL MUSIC” VIDEO. DEBUT ALBUM ‘VIBE CITY UTAH’ TO BE RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 2.

NVDES – MIND BODY SOUL MUSIC:

Stereogum premiered LA-based artist NVDES’ “Mind Body Soul Music” visual in the series of eleven music videos HERE, calling it “a frenetic dance track that…wrangles fiery old gospel sounds into hard-hitting modern contexts, but also calls back to the Prodigy and other maximalist dance marauders of the late ’90s.” “Mind Body Soul Music” and “Ou La La La (All Eyes On Us” are part of the debut Vibe City Utah album which will be released on 11.2. (pre-order HERE).

The eleven part video series will act like a real-life comic book video story alongside the debut. “Mind Body Soul Music” was filmed in Idyllwild, CA at the Infamous Hicksville Pines Bud and Breakfast. It introduces the first character in the story, Flocky, who maneuvers his way through every scene where the series takes place.

“Vibe City Utah is an endless stream of raw, authentic moments. This is a divine place, filled with the archetypical egos of our society — some gorgeous, some horrifying, all-powerful. In Vibe City, NVDES expresses these egos — recognizes them — through eleven videos, songs, comics, movements, and characters as a means to social evolution. The album’s first video “Mind Body Soul Music” features Flockey [Otscor], the most developed and ecstatic of these characters. Liberated from the cage of his own ego, he slides through a series of moments, riding the wave of pure, limitless energy, dancing in the multiple realities of Vibe City Utah.” – video directors NVDES (Josh Ocean) and Audrey Vignoles.

At the end of the summer, he already revealed the first track “Ou La La La (All Eyes On Us)” HERE, which was prominently featured in Macy’s back to school ad campaign HERE.

Josh described NVDES to FADER earlier: “…as being more like a place; a free zone where existing musical identities get stripped off and tossed aside in favor of embracing creative instincts and just doing your thing.”

Last week, NVDES’ merch store, which includes the vinyl available for pre-order http://merch.nvdesmusic.com/.

NVDES will play live at Big Adventure Fest in Costa Mesa, CA on 11.03.
