Video premiere: Virtual Boy's 'Let Go' arrives from Alpha Pup

Virtual Boy premieres its new video for "Let Go."
Virtual Boy's new video for "Let Go," from its forthcoming debut full-length album, "Virtual Boy," shows images of the duo intermingling with the soundwaves they crafted to create a strange convergence of analog and digital.

The pair, Preston Walker and Henry Allen, make music that walks a similar line. Creating music in Los Angeles, they funnel acoustic sounds ranging from strummed guitar to Vocoder-transformed voice to make digital songs that sound thoroughly modern -- while suggesting the futuristic vibe of 1970s synthesizer music. The new video, which makes its world premiere via Pop & Hiss, is co-directed by Steve Nalepa and Lin Su and arrives a week before the 11-song album comes out via Alpha Pup. You can grab a download of the first single from the album, "Memory of a Ghost," at Virtual Boy's Soundcloud page.


Update: Alpha Pup just tossed us an MP3 of the track for download. You can grab it below (right click).
