EVERYONE IS DIRTY – “Mermaid” from the ‘My Neon’s Dead’ LP
Mermaid is available @ iTunes.
by Walter Price
The space oddity video for Everyone Is Dirty’s “Mermaid” is the only music B-movie that brings trippy possibly gender-neutral and perhaps vampiric outer space aliens to California to pass some much-needed judgment and zap some freaks. The track, a psych-pop dream, is, lyrically, beautifully bizarre…”I went down on this guy on the corner of Mission & 9th, went down on this guy, on the corner of Mission and 9th, 9th, Where u from girl, space alien, you’re a mermaid. Where u from girl, space alien, you’re a mermaid. I came down from the sky on the corner of Mission and 9th. Got so fucking high with my piercing my piercing laser eye, eye…”.
Whatever this track’s lyrics, and its Sarah Rattay Maloney and Sivan Lioncub directed video are saying about society, is still a bit confusing to me, but who cares. This is a song that intrigues, and I guess that is the ultimate outcome. I LIKE YOU!
The truth is out there…
The track is taken from the band’s tasty ‘My Neon’s Dead’.
