SSION is releasing a new album, O, on May 11 via Dero Arcade. Now SSION (pronounced SHUN and the project of Cody Critcheloe) has shared a video for “At Least the Sky is Blue,” a song that features Ariel Pink, who also appears in the video. A press release says the video is inspired by the ‘90s work of film directors David Fincher, Gregg Araki, and Pedro Almodavar. There is a lot going on the video, but most notably it features SSION in drag as Liza Minnelli, with Ariel Pink dressed as Elizabeth Taylor. Watch it below.

Critcheloe had this to say about the video in a press release: “I wanted to make a narrative music video that felt akin to the cult gay movies I grew up worshipping but with a modern twist and modern accessories…. something romantic and tragic but still winking and smirking along the way. Set against a psychedelic and exhausted LA backdrop, I find myself deep inside a cliche: a crush on someone unattainable. Crushes can leave a bigger stain than a relationship because you fall in love with the potential of something rather than the reality. When it never fully manifests you always play back the fantasy in your head and it becomes more romantic, tragic, psychedelic… massive.”
