LA natives Foxygen released a new video a few days ago for the song “San Francisco” off their upcoming album, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, which is due out on the 22nd via Jagjaguwar. Directed by Cameron Dutra, “San Francisco” follows the song’s narrative with Sam France (of Foxygen) leaving his love in San Francisco and retreating to a retro hotel room to dwell on the situation.

Dutra expounded, “I tried to tell the story while keeping the video visually interesting and inferring some of the same emotions I get when listening to the song… Sam and Rado are truly doing something fresh, important, and new despite being very influenced on the past.” The imagery is decidedly psychedelic with tons of retro gear and clothes being flashed throughout the video; even the hotel lighting reminds me of Fear and Loathing a bit.

“San Francisco” is the second video released off Foxygen’s sophomore album and offers a vastly different sound than the first single, “Shuggie.” Foxygen’s tour with labelmates Unknown Mortal Orchestra begins in February, and We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic is now available for pre-order.
