LA-based indie rock band Niantic has just released a brand new music video for their single, “Blades,” from their upcoming six-song EP, Vertical. The video, directed by Jonathan Sims, and starring IFC standout Megan Rosati, premiered on New Noise Mag’s website, and quickly garnered 500 views in under 24 hours; an impressive feat for a band with under 700 Facebook fans.
The video is styled as a cult horror classic, featuring the band’s frontman Ryan Trask in a glittery, bloody battle between ego and id. The band screened the video at their June Gloom festival at Uncle Studios in Van Nuys on Saturday the 20th to a packed house. You can watch the video below:
Niantic is Ryan Trask, Christopher McCartt, Michael Castro, and Alex Stensel. Their six song EP Vertical is available now at niantic.bandcamp.com, and will be available everywhere on August 7th.
