Dream Magnet

Connan Mockasin, the eccentric wizard of majestic pop, has a new tour de force of sorts. His album Please Turn Me Into The Snat is being re-released just over a year after it came out, by the possibly more accessible name Forever Dolphin Love in the UK. The occasion has been celebrated with the release last week of an amazing video for the title track. Arguably his finest work yet, ‘Forever Dolphin Love’ (above) features London-based Connan caked in face paint and stiffly posing among fan-bearing friends also dressed in wild costumes, from where he ventures out into the city. The camera work and concepts in the video are incredible, as if transporting you to Connan’s weird little cult. The psychedelic blues-pop mastermind clearly creates his own world to inhabit, as the scenes seem stolen from his dreams. The dude just keeps getting more whimsical and mystical, having played a party in Paris for Fashion Week the other night alongside Jarvis Cocker and Busy P, and was recently announced as the support act for Warpaint’s UK tour in May.

Forever Dolphin Love will be released on March 28 with a bonus live recording via Erol Alkan and Phantasy Sound.
