The Video:

The eclectic and irresistible pop, electronic and hip-hop conflagration that is Smokey Robotic has just debuted their video "Gandhi" from recently released album Musium. The group, composed of singer-songwriters Seer and Father Dude along with producers !llmind and Konrad Oldmoney, has just wrapped a wildly successful west coast tour culminating in a headline show at The Roxy in Los Angeles, and now MTV Hive has premiered "Gandhi," which producer !llmind succinctly describes as "a trippy ass video for a trippy ass song." The stunning psychedelic visuals were directed by T.S. Pfeffer and Robert McHugh, for Pier Pictures, a studio that's previously directed and/or produced videos for Diplo, El-P, Ice Cube, and others.

"Gandhi" is ultimately a dance track. Producer Konrad Oldmoney explains that, "Originally, I made this beat out of a general discontent for the current state of bass-driven music." The whip crack of snappy production, built around Konrad's global bass sound, opens the track in full to what Seer calls, "a celebration of the sexual and natural wildness of being human." Father Dude elaborates by adding that "The song felt sexually reckless and Gandhi was a strangely appropriate and inappropriate figure to base it off of." Maybe sexualizing Gandhi is spot-on though, because, as Seer continues, "you get higher off of your heart than any substance." It's hard not to get high off this video with its masterful diversity of kaleidoscopic effects, which, as Seer says, "allows the song to breathe" and perhaps most critically, "hopefully inspires women to want to kiss our flying mouths." Truer words... you know how it goes.
