This week one of KRL’s favorite bands, Loomis and the Lust, released a new music video for their song, “Barbarella”, from their Space Camp EP. The video was shot in Santa Barbara in June of this year with the same director that did their earlier video of “Bright Red Chords”.
“We wanted the video to have a bit more of a cinematic story to it like ‘Bright Red Chords’, but with a more concise plot,” said bassist Noah Babcock.
In this video, lead singer and guitarist Will Loomis plays a down-on-his-luck seaside sailor who finds a spacecraft containing the space girl of his dreams. “It was a blast making it because it required some acting skills, mostly from Will, which none of us have experience with,” continued Noah. “Anthony (drummer) and I make short cameos throughout the video, but you’ll have to watch it to see.”
When the video was finished, Loomis and the Lust kept it on the back burner after realizing that they had two awesome music videos, “A.D.D.” and “Barbarella”, and they didn’t want to release them at once.
The new video was released on YouTube Wednesday night-check it out here today!
