Flood Magazine has shared a new Prism Tats video for "Creep Out // Freak Out", directed by Christopher Good.
The video features a young woman on a quest to either creep out or freak out a group of people on her checklist. The mastermind behind Prism Tats is Garrett van der Spek and he states:
"Chris seemed to work with the same intensity in making the video that I had done writing and recording the song, letting it unfold as it pleased."

Prism Tats was written and recorded in its entirety by van der Spek, featuring his own extraordinary vocals, drum machine, guitar, and bass synth - the work of a true one-man rock 'n roll machine. He grew up in Durban, South Africa listening to his father’s collection of rock records from the U.K. and U.S.: Beatles, Bowie, Hendrix, Kinks, Sabbath. The unique influence of his homeland burns deeply, too. “My earliest memory of being affected by music was when I was six years old, seeing a man busking by the side of the road,” van der Spek recalls. “His name was Elvis, a self-styled African ‘rock star’ who played a hybrid brand of rock and roll on a homemade guitar. I was hooked.” The debut album, Prism Tats, is a culmination of a creative life spent on the grind, honing instincts and eventually going all-in on a singular dream. The debut album is available in store and online now via Anti-.
