Canadian band DRUGZNDREAMZ share the video for ‘ EMERALD EYE ‘ the first single off their debut album Psychonaut. The video was animated and directed by the band’s keyboardist and visual effects master Marc Nyiti.
Of the video, Nyiti said, “Mighty beyond words is the flame of the Cosmic, hanging in planes, unknown to man; mighty and balanced, moving in Order, music of harmonies, far beyond man. Speaking with music, singing with color, flame from the beginning of Eternity’s ALL. You are the spark of the flame, burning with color and living with music. Listen to the voice and thou shalt be free.”
DRUGZNDREAMZ traveled from Vancouver to NYC to record their debut album with Graham from Crystal Fighters as the producer. They recorded it over a 3 week period in Woodstock at Williem Dafoe‘s legendary Rubber House, where its big circular dance studio was converted into a recording studio and packed to the brim with vintage synthesizers, drums, guitars, amps, and cabs.
Looking for a way to express bigger ideas that pushed past the boundaries of music videos, Marc Nyiti began dabbling in narrative film-making. In turn, he wrote and directed a low-budget multi-medium feature film called Psychonaut, showcasing the original music of DRUGZNDREAMZ.
Psychonaut is a retro futuristic sci-fi about mind travel. It follows one man’s quest to discover the inner workings of the universe and find family history that had always been hidden from him up until now. Through a series of events and encounters with special people, Cinga finds himself stuck with a serious decision to make… Will his life ever be the same?
