Back in December, we reported that RBMA grad Kai Hugo would release a solo LP under his hardware-based Palmbomen II alias via Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space label in the coming months. Now with the March 3 release date drawing near, Hugo has shared the second of three self-directed videos for tracks from the album. The video for Palmbomen II’s “Carina Sayles” introduces the titular character and comes beautifully awash with ’80s-film existentialism and humid West Coast atmosphere. In the words of the press sheet, “‘Carina Sayles’ answers the question many siblings have asked before: ‘What is that music, anyway?’.”

As Palmbomen II, Hugo Kai will head out on the road for five US dates in early March to support the release, details of which can also be found below alongside the artist’s new video.

March 6 San Francisco CA – Mezzanine*
March 7 Los Angeles, CA – Far Away*
March 12 Brooklyn, NY – Good Room
March 19 Austin, TX – Plush / SXSW Showcase
March 20 Miami, FL – Bardot*
