There's been rumours for years that strange things are afoot in New Mexico. Weird, alien things. Now, Toronto trio DOOMSQUAD are exploring the land of the greys with a two-part video series. Up first is a skies-watching clip for Pageantry Suite number "Two-Way Mirror."
Scored by the group's funk-indebted groove, Chris Boni's visuals focus on the day-to-day of a Roswell tour guide. When he's not on the clock, he's munching on cheese and drawing up all sorts of conspiracy theory-stirring scenes at a remote lodging. The mood lightens when he has to rush back into town to treat a family of three to a tour.
The truth, we hope, is out there. Perhaps all will be revealed in part two. In the meantime, you can reflect on the video for "Two-Way Mirror" after giving it a peep above.
