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.
