I Don’t Know How But They Found Me (iDKHOW), the creative project of singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dallon Weekes, release the music video for their lead single ‘Leave Me Alone’ from the upcoming debut album Razzmatazz out Oct 16 via Fearless Records/Caroline Australia.
The video, directed by Raul Gonzo and shot in Los Angeles in August 2020, stars Dallon and iDKHOW drummer Ryan Seaman. It incorporates the strict CDC guidelines of the pandemic-world into a Kubrickian cool creative complete with seventies sci-fi paranoia.
“Making a video in the middle of a pandemic was a challenge,” explains Dallon. “We decided to incorporate a lot of things from the state of the world as it is now. Social distancing, sterile isolation, etc. it all seemed to fit with the song’s themes of wanting to quarantine yourself from toxic people and situations.”
Razzmatazz‘ is the next chapter in iDKHOW’s unfurling curated storyline, in the multi-faceted world Dallon has constructed. iDKHOW was initially believed to have been a band from 30 plus years ago that never got their big break. But in 2017, an anonymous source began to release recovered video footage of iDKHOW. The videos that span the years 1964 to 1983 have been released out of sequence and display a mysterious genesis that has yet to be understood.
