The Fresh & Onlys Release "Animal of One" Video; Prep For July North American Tour

"The Fresh & Onlys' "Animal of One" is a smooth blend of pop and psychedelia, equal parts distantly wistful and joyously present." - Esquire

The Fresh & Onlys have shared the cinematic new video for "Animal of One," a soaring track off their latest LP, House Of Spirits, out earlier this month on Mexican Summer. The video finds the four-piece - Tim Cohen (vocals, guitar), Wymond Miles (guitar), Shayde Sartin (bass) and Kyle Gibson (drums) - acting as both participant and spectator in a meta-theatrical, film noir fever dream. Director Medhi Alavi is said to have drawn inspiration from 1970's B-movies as well as the work of Andrew Wyeth and Terry Gilliam. BassistShayde Sartin notes the film Paris, Texas as a thematic influence, "My character was supposed to be on a similar mission to return something sacred to his one true love. There's no real reasoning or exact explanation as to how he got there."
