Salisbury-based guitar-rock trio the TeleVibes make the kind of psychedelic pop that forces you deep into the woods in order to lose your mind. Much like that old saying about the City of Lynn, you never come out of TeleVibes’ mind fuck journeys the way you came in, and chances are you have some emotional scars that ensure you never forget it.
In the band’s new single “DMT,” the opening cut off scorcher new LP High Or Die, the TeleVibes venture deep into madness as the song screeches and screams along, and it’s clear that no one is safe from the lingering effects. The cinematic “DMT” video, premiered today by Vanyaland, was directed and edited by TeleVibes drummer Christian A. Hardy of Hardy Boy Film Worx.

“It was the first time we ever got to see him work and film,” says TeleVibes frontman Charlie Northern of Hardy. “And he wasn’t in the band at the point, so it was nice getting that perspective. When we [filmed] the video, we didn’t even know how it was gonna play out. It was interesting.”
Hardy wrote the theme for the video, with cinematography by Hardy and Brendan Kuist, and makeup and FX by Kayla Savage. Kuist served as production assistant, and the clip stars him, Northern, TeleVibes bassist Scott Loring, Jesse Russell, Chris Kuist, and Greg Connor.
