ryan derobertis’ early work as saint pepsi was critically lauded, a trait that’s carried over into his most recent output as skylar spence.  on prom king, which dropped last september via carpark records, derobertis navigated towards big hooks and indelible grooves – key tenets of the dance music he grew up with.  the music video for one of the album’s most impressionable singles, “i can’t be your superman,” arrived today; director maegan houang adds layers of visual surrealism to augment the track’s effervescent demeanor, with a late-night nail salon brawl devolving into a chemically-induced dance fantasy.  watch the clip below.
