Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesWorld Premiere Video: “Psycho Crush” by Ovef Ow

Behold the new video by Chicago band Ovef Ow for their song "Psycho Crush" from their 2017 Working EP! Directed by Chiago artist, designer and musician Timothy Breen, whose work with Numero Group has earned him two Gramy nominations, the video dips the band's infectious punky sounds into a pool of psychadelic colors and textures for a satisyfingly cool summertime effect.

Ovef Ow is Marites Velasquez (bass, vocals, and CHIRP volunteer...!), Sarah Braunstein (drums, vocals), Kyla Denham (synth, vocals), and Nick Barnett (guitar). Check out their CHIRP Radio podcast interview. The band will be performing Wednesday August 1 with (ORB) and Sat. Nite Duets at Sleeping Village (3734 W. Belmont) as part of the "In the Pit" Series.
