Parquet Courts – “Sunbathing Animal” Video

Sunbathing Animal,” the title track from Parquet Courts’ upcoming full-length, is a frantically dizzy four-minute spazz out that never lets up its intensity. The song’s video, directed by Andy Capper and Parquet Courts singer-guitarist Andrew Savage, goes about as far in the other direction as possible. It’s four minutes of a cat hesitantly weighing whether to escape through an open window, Inside Llewyn Davis-style, or just chill on the couch and, you know, sunbathe. According to Noisey, it’s an homage to the Replacements’ legendary non-video video for “Bastards Of Young.” Subject yourself to the suspense (if you dare!) below.

Sunbathing Animal is out 6/3 on What’s Your Rupture?/Mom + Pop. Parquet Courts will debut a new song 4/30 on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
