WATCH: Pearl Charles Channels Desert Vibes in “Mind’s A Mystery” Video

Charles's debut EP is out now on Burger.

Pearl Charles‘ sound might be straight out of the Laurel Canyon of the early seventies (along with a little Lee Hazelwood–style production flourish thrown in for go-go kicks), but for her video for “Mind’s A Mystery,” she headed out to Joshua Tree. “I stay wise,” she sings as she wanders the rocks and statues of Desert Christ Park, while she strums her band through a swaying boogie.

“‘Mind’s A Mystery’ is a song about trying penetrate beyond the external facade and break down barriers in order to navigate the rabbit hole that is the inside of another’s mind and thought process,” Charles says in a statement. “Directors Melodi Meadows and Asher Moss and I wanted to pair this song with a visual that emphasized the alluring intoxication of this pursuit and chose the desert in Joshua Tree to create our version of a mirage, a psychedelic dreamscape atmosphere that reflects both beautiful illusion as well as hazy confusion.”

It’s been a big year for Charles, who released her debut EP on Burger this summer and brought her desert-glam show to the oasis at FLOODFest Vegas in September.
