San Francisco’s The Love Dimension takes the hazy sound of ‘60s psychedelia and pairs it with a garage rock twist. The band itself has quite an alternating lineup, but frontman Jimmy L. Dias remains the steady pillar of it all. Fittingly, Dias told RIFF last January that he aims to make music that’s like “a lighthouse” for listeners, “shin[ing] a light so others can find their way.”

Now, The Love Dimension is releasing a music video for the aptly titled track, “I’ll Find a Way.” We are thrilled to premiere it below!
Off the group’s latest EP, Acceptance, “I’ll Find a Way” features a groovy melody driven by fiery, heroic-sounding guitar riffs. The video dives straight into scenes of outer space and kaleidoscope patterns, with glitches and distortions constantly sneaking in. To make the video, The Love Dimension combined forces with Scott Franklin, vocalist-guitarist of Bay Area band Buzzmutt.
Buzzmutt also fuses ‘60s psych rock with grunge, and the band is no stranger to incorporating abstract graphics with their releases. The two bands met through holding practices at Secret Studios. With complete creative control from Dias, Franklin started with a couple photos of Dias and the band, and then brought the images to life.
“I feel like the video reflects the energy of the band—always changing, shifting and adapting to the present moment,” Dias said. “The song is about never giving up, being persistent and following your dreams with all your heart. I feel like the fractals in the video could represent that too. With the endless quantum possibilities this universe provides, there is always a way.”
You can hear “I’ll Find a Way” in person at Bottom of the Hill on Sept. 16. An evening of modern-day psychedelic rock, the show features performances by Agouti, Down Dirty Shake and The Love Dimension.
