Psychedelic band Dead Swells released a music video for its single “Tiger Stripes” on Sept. 27.

The video features vocalist Paul Nederostek, Kelly Morris of rock band the Mobros and Rialto Row producer Wolfgang Zimmerman dressed from head to toe in patterns, prints and blazers.

The visual’s vibe matches the song perfectly. The funky beat takes over every aspect of the video from the fashion to the feel-good dance moves. The energy is infectious.

“Tiger Stripes” is the new first single Dead Swells released since its 2020 self-titled album. Dead Swells was recorded largely by Nederostek during his quarantine isolation, he told the City Paper in August. Zimmerman co-produced the newest album, adding those signature Rialto Row textures to its space-rock influenced sound.
