Published Jul 30, 2012Liars have a new video for WIXIW track "Brats," which definitely gets more mileage out of the band's recent statement, "If we aren't confusing people, it's not us. If we aren't confusing ourselves with what we do, then we've failed."
On the one hand, the band's wobbly, absurdist disco pop jam seems straightforward compared to much of their catalogue, but the animated visuals play plenty skewed. In it, an anthropomorphized rabbit with a manky vestigial tail does a ritualistic, interpretive dance with a CGI Elmer Fudd and a basset hound.
A shotgun gets shoved in a maw, a storm of thumbnail pics whirls around a white canvas, and then Liars enter the scene clumsily like the Three Stooges for a tumbling finale. You can check it all out below.
