watch The Helio Sequence’s trippy, animated video for “Upward Mobility” ++ updated tour dates

by Bill Pearis


The Helio Sequence‘s new self-titled album is out May 18 via Sub Pop (pre-order yours) and the band have made a video for “Upward Mobility” which makes its premiere in this post. Gorgeously animated by Emanuele Kabu, the video (like the song) is lightly psychedelic, abstract, and may remind some viewers of a certain age of old-school Sesame Stream segments. It’s pretty cool and you can watch it below.

The band’s upcoming tour rolls through NYC in June, playing Rough Trade on 6/17 and Mercury Lounge on 6/18. Tickets are still available. Updated tour dates are listed below….
