Ariel Pink fast-forwards the years with ‘Dayzed Inn Daydreams’ video

Grant Singer-directed clip documents the life of an aged roll ’n roll star.

Ariel Pink has unveiled a new video for ‘Dayzed Inn Daydreams’, a track taken from 2014 LP ‘pom pom’. 

Directed by Grant Singer, the new clip documents the life of an aged but never-fading rock ’n roll star, who still manages to roll back the years by performing on stage, in between supermarket shifts and dealing cigarettes to kids. 

“It’s the story of a man, played by Rick Wilder, who was once the frontman of a band that existed decades ago. Through a series of scenes depicting his everyday life, we tell his story,” says the director. 

Ariel Pink arrives in the UK for a trio of dates this spring:

FEBRUARY
28 Manchester, Future Everything Festival

MARCH
03 London, Electric Ballroom
04 Brighton, Old Market
