With the release of Total Time just a few weeks away, DOOMSQUAD have today unveiled a visually arresting and suitably psychedelic video for current single ‘Pyramids On Mars’. Co-directed by Ghostprom and Trevor Blumas for PORCH, ‘Pyramids On Mars’ is shot in a dreamlike desert landscape: “The video is about the cyclical nature of time in correlation with memory, biology and the environment”, say Doomsquad. “It examines the polarities of drought and abundance, barrenness and vitality, male and female, singularly and plurality through a psychic quagmire of astral dust and mirrors.”

“Not your average family band – “Pyramids On Mars” is filled with echoey effects, rapid-fire percussion, and a warbling, ominous bass synth melody—the hallmarks of quirky sci-fi sonics.” ~ FADER

“unearthly meditative dance track features desonant vocalization and techno loops that hang on the strand of buzzing bass lines and collection of drums that create an intoxicating loop of atmopsheric immersion” – NOISEY

“an experimental dance group who utilize world music, repetition, and psychedelic flourishes to craft their brand of rhythmic trance tunes” – FLOOD
“immersive blend of progressive beats and stoned psychedelia matched perfectly here as the video’s protagonist is caught up in a trance like state at a UFO convention” – LOBF
