Video: James Supercave, ‘The Right Thing’

James Supercave video

Is it dark in the abyss? What do you see after you’ve fallen in? Maybe disjointed, surreal vignettes starring people from your past, alternately illuminating your grandest hopes and worst fears. That’s the trip through which director James Kid guides viewers in the new video for James Supercave’s “The Right Thing.” Joaquin Pastor, the L.A. band’s frontman, calls it a “psychedelic jump into the abyss,” with the Charlie Sarroff-filmed scenes seemingly as disconnected as the song’s abrupt turns from pop to glam to psych and back again. The song, Pastor says, is the only one from James Supercave’s “The Afternoon” EP that will make it on to the full-length — which, impatient followers of the L.A. outfit will be happy to learn, is planned for an early 2016 release.
