Absolutely Free – “Vision’s”

We’re clearly dealing with a krautrock vibe, here, but this also feels like a Stella Artois commercial.

It’s a little Lynchian as well: the old dude singing Willie Nelson tunes, the forlorn woman and man in a leisure suit that stroll around like they’re window shopping—what does it all mean?

Oh, the band released a statement describing the video; it should be helpful: “‘Vision’s’ was written as a song about losing focus. The video suggests a distorted environment/context that plays on the musical aesthetic of the song and reinforces Absolutely Free’s ethos.”

Perhaps not. “Vision’s”—we’ll assume the extraneous apostrophe was deliberate—comes from Absolutely Free’s debut full-length of 2014 (it wasn’t quite self-titled; they added a period: Absolutely Free.).
