Boy do we have a surreal batch of videos for you this time around. Feast your eyes on the latest videos from Little Dragon, Danny Brown, Nine Inch Nails, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Run the Jewels, & more!
1. Little Dragon – “Strobe Light”:
Little Dragon can do no wrong. “Strobe Light” explores the world of queer South Africa and it is utterly fabulous. From the capes, to the dancing, to the woman dangerously leaning out of a car doing insane donuts, this video is definitely a contender for one of my favorite music videos of 2017 so far.
2. Danny Brown – “Lost”:
Danny Brown always has the best visuals. In his latest video for “Lost,” he somehow manages to hit us with a video that is even more surreal and manic than ever before.
3. Run The Jewels – “Love Again” ft. Gangsta Boo:
I am deathly allergic to bees, so this video for “Love Again” is pretty terrifying. Much like the song though, it is oddly fascinating and I can’t pull myself away.
4. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “Invisible Face”:
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are one of the weirdest bands out there right now. (I mean, they promised us not one, not two, but FIVE albums in 2017.) And even though they’ve released two albums since 2016’s Nonagon Infinity, they decided to drop a video for the album’s “Invisible Face” this week anyway. Way to keep us on our toes guys.
5. Nine Inch Nails – “LESS THAN”:
I’m very, very stoked to see Nine Inch Nails this weekend at FYF. That is all.
5. Alvvays – “In Undertow”:
I’ll be the first to admit, I slept on Alvvays for way too long. “In Undertow” is a beautiful track with dreamy layered vocals that cascade over you and make you feel like everything will be ok. The video is equally as dreamy with boatloads of awesome 80’s visual effects.
6. Broken Social Scene- “Vanity Pail Kids”:
A toilet aims for stardom in a world of garbage heads… Broken Social Scene was not one bit subtle in this one and I respect that. Plus, I’m trash, so I appreciate the representation.
7. Radiohead OKNOTOK Secret Message:
Earlier this month, Radiohead released a special 20th anniversary edition of “OK Computer”. The boxed set includes lots of goodies like a cassette tape that concludes with 2 minutes of seemingly random computer tones. That is, until some nerd on the internet fed those tones into an 8-bit computer from the 80’s that revealed a secret message within the music. This kinda stuff fucks me up. Like, of course Radiohead has a huge following of incredibly devoted fans that will pore over anything they release for secret messages. But, how many of these unknown pleasures are floating out there in the world still waiting to be discovered?!
