I'm always partial to a bit of experimental rock group Battles, especially when they pull hilarious and original videos such as this one out the bag.
The bizarrely humorous concept is pure genius, albeit a little whacky - but that's what makes this video so unique. The green-tinged post, coupled with the VHS style aesthetics makes for a perfect finish to an already brilliant music video.
I half feel sorry for the stuntman, having to fall down an escalator continuously for 4 minutes. I wonder if the blood is genuine?
Produced by The Studio in collaboration with Warp Records, we paired Battles with directoral duo Daniels, who are known for dreaming up some wild music videos for bands like Chromeo and Manchester Orchestra, as well as a slew of short and endearing films that manage to warp reality just enough to catch you slightly off guard.
I am also a big fan of their last video for the track "Ice Cream" - check it out here.
