On this fine day in the calm before the storms of SXSW, we’d like to introduce you to a band called Professor Possessor – a sincerely weird garage wave/witchpop band from L.A. – with an exclusive premiere of their new video.
Professor Possessor’s sound is dark and weird, yet infectiously catchy, and shares a sonic palette that bands like Cut Copy, Grimes, and Twin Sister inhabit. They released a self-titled EP in 2011 and a full length album called Strange Paradise in Sept 2012, with songs reflecting a love for everything from David Lynch and Dario Argento to John Waters and Linea Quigley.
The band has made some high production/diy music videos that highlight their throwback/campy aesthetic; check out Baby It’s Magic for an example. Their latest, Another Kind, is a trip down a nightmare fetish encounter in the burn ward. Watch it below, exclusively on Antiquiet:
Professor Possessor is Hayden Hall, Jacob Summers, Jess Imme, and Scarlet A. Newman-Thomas. They reside in Los Angeles. They’re weird as fuck, and we like ’em that way.
