Before I watched this video, I thought a bit about how I would visually represent this song. Sadly, all I could come up with was a weird kind of Austin Powers-esque psychedelic treatment, to match up with the groovy swing of the song.
What Unknown Mortal Orchestra and directors Jordan Blady and Ryan Knowles came up with though was a David Lynch/Tim Burton style freak show of floating heads and discomfort. All of this goes to prove only one thing: I should never be asked to make a music video.
If you haven't been scared off by the video, why not check out this raft of tour dates that UMO has lined up in February and March when they will be headed down to raise the roof at this year's SXSW. Plan your road trips and vacations accordingly.
