Los Angeles based artist, Seb Torgus, takes a distinctive route with his latest visual for “Acid”, tapping into the artist’s emotional struggles & inner spiritual changes allowing him to ascend to new heights.

Directed by an all female production team, Verluxe, the artist and the team were successfully able to put their own exclusive spin on the iconic Hunter S. Thompson‘s Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. On “Acid”, Seb talks about his own spiritual and mental growth. In the beginning of the video, we see a scorpion crawling on the backseat. The usage of the scorpion is symbolic for the changes Seb was getting prepared to experience as he took this ride.

We are then able to view the artist driving through the desert, top down, traveling with three different versions of himself: his conscience, his physical body, & his dark side. Over a melodious tune & smooth guitar chords, Seb and his team emphasize on the use of retro style color schemes and unconventional camera angles, to take his viewers significantly deeper into the psychedelic journey.
