San Fran band Young Prisms have debuted the single and video, “Outside Air,” the fourth cut taken from their upcoming studio recording, Drifter, which drops via Fire Talk on March 25th. The group consists of members Stefanie Hodapp (vocals, synthesizer), Matthew Allen (vocals, guitar, bass, synthesizer, drum programming), Giovanni Betteo (bass, guitar, synthesizer, drum programming), and Jordan Silbert (drums).

The black-and-white “Outside Air” video was directed by Gio Betteo and stars Stefanie Hodapp, it is also the sequel to the previously-released “Honeydew” video.

Commenting on the video, Betteo shares:

“The ‘Outside Air’ video is intended to be the second installment of a series we started with ‘Honeydew.’ Really an ode to Antonioni and Monica Vitti. Definitely leaning into the mystery and minimalism of the story telling style and how something so simple on the surface can offer so much complexity beneath.”

Regarding the single itself, the Betteo and Hodapp combo states:

“‘Outside Air’ is about the struggles and difficulties in modern marriage, monogamy, and parenting at a young age. Resentment within a relationship can sink so deep and feel never ending but the work it takes can pull you out of a depression. At times it may feel like the only way out is to run away, but the payoff can sometimes save you from making irreversible decisions. This song was recorded during the California wildfires where the orange sky embodied these feelings of fear, anger, and disappointment.”
