Ty Segall ‘Candy Sam’

The UK debut of Ty’s new video


 

Following a most sketchy tour of the United States in February and March which included stops at populist TV programs The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and CONAN, Ty Segall & The Muggers went underground. Coinciding with warmer weather elevating the city’s ripe sewer stench, they’ve re-emerged, grimier and bleaker than ever – even more suitable for the great unwashed they typically attract on the road. The road of which we now speak runs through the European continent, as Ty and his Muggers are about to embark on a month long trip in search of big babies and squealers with all the sweet treats that only ‘Candy Sam’ can provide. What’s a “Candy Sam?” Well, aside from being a standout ripper from Ty Segall’s most recent LP, Emotional Mugger, it’s now a most essential (and très creepy) music vid!



Directed by Ty Segall, ‘Candy Sam’ is a hallucinatory excursion into a non-traditional realm. You won’t find any paisley swashes or melting colours, but you’re sure as hell going to get free on the overwhelming buzz that comes with the revolving gaze of smiling neonates. Don’t you love babies? So do we! Who doesn’t really? It’s an innate feeling. But stare too long and you might get a little spooked… Never take candy from a baby, after all – you don’t really know where it’s been or what they’ve slipped into it, the little devils! 
Ty Segall &The Muggers begin their European slither one week from today at Villette Sonique in Paris!
