Belgian psychedelic outfit Hugs of the Sky have shared a video for their new single, “Creature Up Your Feature.” It comes from their forthcoming album, Tangerine Boredom Delusion, out February 22nd.
“Creature Up Your Feature” is a gritty, lo-fi psych-rock anthem. With catchy guitar riffs and slacker vocals, Hugs of the Sky are ready to take you on a dreamy sonic journey. The accompanying animated video, created by Rania Daher, is full of bright, trippy visuals that will transport you on a technicolour journey. The entrancing visuals fit the tune perfectly.
“It’s a song of unanswered and unreachable love, a perception and illustration of how the lover is almost always a madman (like maybe all of the album),” band member Boris Willems explains. “But still the echoes of tangibility and accessibility lurk as a haunting memory. Like all of the Hugs of the Sky, there’s some tragic, but there’s also always the need to embrace this mood and to show there’s some hope and light in the darkness.”

“The title is almost literally a fusion of the songs ‘Creature Feature’ from Meadbodies and ‘Suture Up Your Future’ from Queens of the Stone Age,” Willems continues. “Also sonically and aesthetically, these are very influential songs. I think these bands have a very specific, untamable sound, a sound which shaped music history.”
Tangerine Boredom Delusion serves as Hugs of the Sky’s fourth studio album. Written during the lockdown of 2020, the album marks the first time the band has worked with an external mastering engineer: Joe Carra.
