Bangkok-based quintet FWENDS appeared in our Best of 2015 with their fantastic debut single, “Fade Away”. Now they’re here again with their first official video “Why Can’t You See”, which magnifies psychedelic atmosphere of their music.
Combining a foggy shoegaze aura with strong songwriting, they’ve managed to bring something fresh out of well-known components. They also pay attention to the visual aspect of their work as shown in this mesmerizing video directed by Paphawee Jinnasith. It takes us into a closing stage of a night party where alcohol, smoke and desire blur the border between reality and dream.
Late December, they released their second EP “Petrichor“, a great promise for their longplay hopefully to soon to come.
