First Person Shootr

At least two or three times in my life, I have said, “This is gonna be the last chillwave album I really like.” The most recent time was back in February when I heard Mobility For Gods by First Person Shootr. For me, chillwave has always instigated imagery of beaches and surfers and such, and I felt the same way about Mobility — I used to bump it on my nano as I bladed down to the wharf. But now that I’ve seen the new video for the lead-off track “Punch-Struck,” I realize my imagery was all wrong. Paired with dark, haunting images, the slow-motion guitars and slurred lyrics turn from a lazy beach day to a very scary trip to the woods. Suddenly, First Person Shootr’s molasses beats topped with angelic synths don’t seem so comfortable anymore.
