Today marks the premiere of the video for “11:11,” the title track to the new Prism Tats EP. A psych/post-punk project helmed by South African transplant Garett van der Spek, Prism Tats released 11:11 last month on Anti- Records.
Directed by photographer Dan Monick, “11:11” follows van der Spek through the desolate landscape of urban Los Angeles. Shot in deserted parking lots and empty donut shops, the quietly unnerving video echoes the song’s musings on hope and optimism in the modern world.
“I’m superstitious about 11:11,” says van der Spek. “The song’s referencing that, and how the idea that 11:11 means something good’s about to happen is complete garbage—but maybe it’s also not, if you believe in it.”
