Enter an eerie dream-like world with Sleep Party People on "Fainting Spell" [Premiere]

Strange things are afoot in Sleep Party People’s latest video, “Fainting Spell.” The eerie visuals start out right from the gates with a hooded figure sitting at a desk with some crawling walls in front of him/her. Shot in black and white, the video traces the creation of SPP’s iconic rabbit mask, a staple that Brian Batz and crew rock at all their live shows.

On “Fainting Spell” SPP utilizes his soft and dream like voice to create a wonderful track over his continuously building and layered productions. Things start out like a scene in Groundhog's Day, a bell chiming and then restarting, over and over before Batz adds more layers into the mix. Couple this with the retro TV flickering images of a masked bunny man singing to the audience, and you’ve got yourself a winner.

As the track continues to build, our hero gets closer and closer to finishing his mask. As he puts the finishing touches on his mask, things come to a crescendo with all the layers working perfectly in unison. “Fainting Spell” is a creepy cacophony of sound and instrumentation that only a voice as airy and dream-like as Batz’ could ride with ease.

Check out the visuals for “Fainting Spell” above and for those of you in Europe, be sure to catch Batz and his five-piece live band on his upcoming tour.
