After getting signed to Toronto’s Paper Bag Records, Vancouver dream rockers FRANKIIE have just dropped a surreal, trippy video for their new single “Dream Reader.”
“‘Dream Reader’ was written around a series of dreams I’d had while the band was feeling directionless,” songwriter Nashlyn Lloyd explains in a statement. “I was struggling to maintain my belief in the importance of creating music and our ambitions as a group. These dreams of drowning, stranded horses, and flying janky planes kept coming. I looked a few up in a dream dictionary and found that many of them were about new beginnings, emotional rebirth.”
The accompanying Jeremy Wallace-MacLean-directed clip comes packed with peculiar images of humans with animal heads, masked people in a field of trailers, and a man with boxing glove hands on a boat. The subject of the clip appears to try to escape the bizarre experience until she eventually embraces the strange, dream-like sequence by putting on a mask of her own.
