Hooray For Earth – “Say Enough” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Earlier this year, Hooray For Earth released their new album, Racy, and we’ve already seen the video for album track “Keys,” which fetishized motorcycles with an intimacy and creepiness that blended Kanye’s “Bound 2” with that scene from Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child when that dude got turned into a motorcycle. Now they give us a video for the song “Say Enough,” which tells the very human story of a newly broken-up couple, following computer-animated characters drinking, having sex, and sadly remembering. It’s one of the only times I’ve seen the occasionally grotesque uncanny-valley effect of computer models used to increase emotional impact. Watch it below.
Racy is out now via Dovecote.
