Doomsquad // Pyramids on Mars (Video)

With the release of Total Time just a few weeks away, DOOMSQUAD have today unveiled a visually arresting and suitably psychedelic video for current single ‘Pyramids On Mars’. Co-directed by Ghostprom and Trevor Blumas for PORCH, ‘Pyramids On Mars’ is shot in a dreamlike desert landscape: “The video is about the cyclical nature of time in correlation with memory, biology and the environment”, say Doomsquad. “It examines the polarities of drought and abundance, barrenness and vitality, male and female, singularly and plurality through a psychic quagmire of astral dust and mirrors.”

Pre-order Total Time vinyl here from Hand Drawn Dracula and here from iTunes.

“The ancient electronic sounds of Doomsquad are part new age, part experimental and entirely original. After releasing their 2014 debut, Kalaboogie, on Toronto’s Hand Drawn Dracula label, they’ve been building a slow and steady momentum. One day they will explode like 1,000 stars in the sky, and we’ll be there to say, “Told you so.”” ~ CBC Radio3

“A defiantly “album”-like album in an iPod era, Doomsquad’s full-length debut is a monument to bloodyminded strangeness: a free-flowing melange of creepy chants, druggy drones and lockstep beats that only truly betrays its greatness when consumed in a single, enchanting sitting.” ~ The Star
