Published Jun 29, 2016While Of Montreal were focusing on the hits for their recent Canadian appearances, Kevin Barnes and co. have some brand new, Atlanta-styled indie funk coming our way this summer. Ahead of issuing their Innocence Reaches, the band have uploaded a dance-crazy music video for first single "It's Different for Girls."
The clip finds Barnes decked out in his current blonde wig-and-glitter paint regalia, singing into the camera about women being oppressed and "aggressively objectified" as "sexual currency." As he further explores the unbalanced gender dynamic between girls and "aggro pricks," a Soul Train-style dance line breaks out in the room.
Highlights include one woman busting out the rhythm ribbons and insanely bendable split moves, another guy vogueing while wearing a skeleton's hands for eyeglasses, and a tiny pre-teen dominating the competition with her on-point choreography.
You'll find the nu-disco track's fun-filled, but socially conscious vid below, while Of Montreal's Innocence Reaches arrives August 12 through Polyvinyl Records.
