New Orleans punk darling Psychic Hotline's new video "Empathy," for a track of their album Planned Obsolescence, is equal parts dreamy, hypnotic and unsettling. Featuring a cast of NOLA queer favorites including Oblivia and Softie, the clip is as ephemeral as it is jarring. Directed by Michael Aros, the video is dedicated "in loving memory of Pixote."
Psychic Hotline is the solo project of Ruth Ex, a multidisciplinary artist who is also a member of queer punk band Special Interest.
Psychic Hotline's new EP Call Me will be out this winter. Learn more at their Bandcamp.
