WATCH: The Helio Sequence Share Delightfully Trippy Video for “Upward Mobility”

Their self-titled album is out May 19 via Sub Pop.

Off the bat, the “helio” prefix is appropriate when applied in music alone to The Helio Sequence, but just to compound that sunny association, the Portland indie duo has now shared a beautiful and colorful video (premiered by Brooklyn Vegan) for the track “Upward Mobility.”

With excellent animation from Emanuele Kabu, the constantly transforming, Kandinsky-influenced visual trip feels like a simulated stint lying outside in the park, and finds The Helio Sequence off to a good start (along with the first single, “Stoic Resemblance”) ahead of their upcoming self-titled album—the group’s sixth full-length.

The Helio Sequence is out May 19 on Sub Pop.
