Desert Ships Fuzzy Trippy Video for new single “Heavy Soup”

The official music video for Desert Ships‘ single “Heavy Soup” is a psychedelic trip through the world of indie garage rock. Using a combination of retro-style visual video effects and editing which go along with the fuzzy guitars, the video captures the essence of early 2000s garage rock revival, similar to the likes of The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys.


Director Gil De Ray brings his wizardry to the accompanying video and delivers the ultimate visual experience.

From the moment the video starts, the viewer is taken on a journey through a psychedelic realm of vivid colors and dreamy imagery superimposed on the band playing the song.

‘Heavy Soup’ is an infectious and uptempo fuzz blast through the cosmos and tells the story of a star gazer who despite copious warnings often finds themselves in sticky situations. A desire to escape the day to day grind, combined with the lure of temptation – the doing something we know we shouldn’t – leads our character to being “…stuck in heavy soup again”. It’s about learning from mistakes, or maybe not in this case
