Imagine home TV shopping clips, static, and an abundance of dancing jelly goop haunting your dreams, and you’ll get TIO’s music video for his new single, Dirt.
The Canadian electronic act offers light visuals for a seemingly dark track, and it’s actually fun to watch, most especially when high. Directed by Jacq Andrade and Pierce Desrochers-O’Sullivan, the video kind of reminds us of a dream-like version of Idle Hands, for some reason, maybe because of the dark overtones of the song mixed with silly visuals. Inspired by late night restlessness while glued on the TV, the video is supposed to be a dark way of seeing how we all spend so much time procrastinating while wasting away hours on infomercials and useless TV shows.
“The lyrics for the song “Dirt” helped to inform some of the imagery and themes in the video. The lyrics were written via a stream of consciousness and were intended to emphasize the variability and unpredictability of the unconscious mind; the part of the mind that we tend to inhabit when we’re tuned out (or even tuned in).” said TIO, in a release sent to The Violet Wave
