VIDEO PREMIERE : OKEY DOKEY – LOW RENT // BLUE SKIES

PREMIERE on D0512

As far as we know, psychedelic doo-wop didn’t exist as a genre until Okey Dokey started making it.

The Beach Boys grazed the surface during the famously aborted Smile sessions, but they certainly didn’t make it a principle vocation as the Nashville, Tennessee duo do. Composed of guitarist Johny Fisher and visual artist Aaron Martin, Okey Dokey already staked claim to that ground with their first single, “Wavy Gravy“. Their debut album, 2017’s Love You, Mean It proved that the formula worked on a full-length scale.

Today, the band has shared a brand new music video for their latest single, album high-water mark “Low Rent // Blue Skies”. The music video, which was filmed and directed in Austin by local photographer Pooneh Ghana, stars Austin comedian JT Kelley as some sort of misbehaving entrepreneurial cowboy, a banana stand, and Okey Dokey. If that description sounds equal parts awesome and confusing that’s because it is. Watch the music video premiere of Okey Dokey’s “Low Rent // Blue Skies,” below.

Okey Dokey ‘Either Or, It’s All The Same’ Premiered by Wonderland

Nashville super psych group get weird in new video

Disintegration and rebirth is part of the natural order of things. This statement holds true for Okey Dokey, a Nashville based psych collective made up of the remnants of past and present bands The Weeks, Sol Cat and Morning Teleportation, conjuring up a sound firmly at home in the future.

Their latest offering is the sultry 60’s garage inspired “Either Or, It’s All the Same”. Speaking on the video the boys said “This video came to be when our close friend and guru, Paul, was saying that he had never once been asked to be in a video in all of his years as an industry man. Johny and I obviously felt the need to help him out. What better way than a home invasion! That was all before the joint kicked in and we decided to hit another dimension on the way home.” Be prepared to get very weird.
