A title like “Boneyard” may sound strange and foreboding, but this video clip for Flower Orgy’s new single spends its entirety as a goofball tribute to a carefree Summer’s day. Nate Luce, the lead singer/guitarist of the Brooklyn trio, accompanies the song’s psychedelic jaunt with disparate, collage-like clips of the band dancing their way through apartment hallways and burning through endless amounts of cigarettes. A description of the band’s forthcoming cassette on the Fire Talk website tells us that ”Flower Orgy makes the kind of laid back jams your mom might have smoked a joint to.” The band certainly live up to that description in the song’s thrashy yet laid-back charm. The final image of the clip is a picture of a mug that reads, “AT TIMES LIFE IS PURE JOY!” By the end of “Boneyard,” most listeners will have to agree.
