US genre-bending artist DES ROCS releases official music video for 'Imaginary Friends'

Today, NYC-native Des Rocs released the official video for ‘Imaginary Friends’ from his acclaimed debut album, ‘A Real Good Person In A Real Bad Place’. The ‘Imaginary Friends’ music video tells the story of a bullied young boy’s escapist fantasy, featuring his imaginary friends, an array of outcasts and misfits, along with Des Rocs himself.

It is eccentric and action-packed as it follows the boy’s vibrant imagination into Des Rocs’ spectacular and grungy wonderland.

“Growing up I often felt like a fish out of water, retreating from the corners of my own imagination and seeking comfort in creatures of my own creation,” explains Des Rocs. “Imaginary Friends are not only a mechanism of escape in times of darkness and doubt, but most importantly a source of strength.”

‘A Real Good Person In A Real Bad Place’ follows the release of three EPs, with more than 150 million streams, and various shows supporting The Rolling Stones, Muse, Grandson, and many more. Following his album release, the DES ROCS ALIVE headlining tour, saw Des Rocs play more than 20 iconic venues around the US, including The Troubadour in Los Angeles and The Turf Club in St. Paul, in addition to appearances at Firefly Music Festival and Aftershock Festival.

Since the tour’s end in November, Des Rocs has been underground plotting his next move. Keep an eye out in 2022.

Tour Dates:
December 10 – Chicago, IL @ 101.1 WKQX’s The Night We Stole Christmas
