West Coast psych-poppers the Skygreen Leopards have just released a new video for Crying Green & Purple, a single taken from their recent full length, Family Crimes. Crying Green & Purple is a jangly and memorable number, with some striking lyrics beneath its sunny exterior. The video utilizes found footage of young festival revelers, supersaturated with bright colors to reflect the tune’s slightly melancholic preoccupation with “tie dye.”
Family Crimes is available now on Woodsist. The band has also announced an extension of their current tour to include a show at Brooklyn venue Baby’s All Right, as well as a show at Minneapolis’ famed 7th Street Entry at First Avenue alongside the excellent Papercuts, whose Jason Quever assisted in the recording of Family Crimes. These dates come in addition to a handful of dates supporting Woodsist labelmates Woods.
