Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joey Vannucchi, better known as From Indian Lakes, is taking the natural scenery of the California wilderness and translating it into his forthcoming album, Everything Feels Better Now, out now. The album features single "American Dreams," and Billboard is premiering the simplistic and empowering music video below.

The "American Dreams" music video features a man, a woman and a couch in a desert surrounded by explosions of turmoil. “After listening to the song a few times, I couldn’t get the image of a man dancing in the desert out of my mind. I loved the idea of a man and his family living in their own little mysterious world, while the chaos of everyday life continued around them," said video director Matthew Palmer. "Thankfully, they allowed me to take that simple concept and run with it.”

From Indian Lakes takes the same simple approach when it comes to his music. Everything Feels Better Now was recorded using vintage analog equipment, with no editing on vocals and instrumentation, according to Vannucchi. "When writing and recording this album, I was really trying to capture a lo-fi aesthetic, while still retaining a sense of thoughtfulness," he adds.
