Earlier this year, Liars released Mess, their most dance-friendly album in many years but also one of their most apocalyptic. The new video for “Pro Anti Anti,” a song that Factory Floor have already remixed, is just as apocalyptic. In the clip, Liars band members Angus Andrew and Aaron Hemphill go to visit the 3D technology company Direct Dimensions to have their faces scanned completely. We then watch as their faces become statues, taking time to take in all the craftsmanship that goes into work like that. I don’t want to give anything away, but the creation of those faces is not the end of the video. Yoonha Park directed the video, and it’s a powerful and absorbing meditation on ideas of art and decay. Watch it below.
Mess is out now on Mute.
