SSION that is pronounced “shun”, is the multidimensional innovative DIY musical (and not only) project initiated by Cody Critcheloe. Today SSION together with Ariel Pink have shared the music video for Critcheloe’s second single from his upcoming album “O”.
“At Least the Sky Is Blue” is the title of the track and the video is self-directed. In it Critcheloe is wickedly haunted by the ghost of Elizabeth Taylor that is performed by Ariel Pink. In the end Critcheloe appears magically as Liza Minnelli dueting with Ariel (Taylor). “I wanted to make a narrative music video that felt akin to the cult gay movies I grew up worshipping but with a modern twist and modern accessories,” Critcheloe states. He adds: “Something romantic and tragic, but still winking and smirking along the way.”
Critcheloe’s new album is a follow up since 2011’s “Bent”. “O” arrives May 11 via DERO Arcade and we are looking forward to it. Enjoy the bizarre clip below.
