Liars - "WIXIW" Video

Liars frontman Angus Andrew is a tall guy, and like every tall guy who’s never been paid to play basketball, he probably has some history of b-ball failure. (I promise you, I know.) So maybe it’s not surprising that his band’s newest video, for the title track of their 2012 album WIXIW, focuses on a flowing-haired baller who tries, over and over, to dunk a basketball, while a small crowd looks on silently and a demonic witch-doctor type dances mockingly. Alex/2Tone directs, filming everything in mythic black-and-white slow-motion. Watch it below.

WIXIW is out now on Mute.

  1. No comments? Wow. Beautiful video from an amazing song, which is one of the many peaks of the greatest record i listened to in 2012.

    That pretty much sums it up. :-)
