Last year, the Boston band (and Band To Watch) Krill landed a spot on our list of the Best New Bands Of 2013 on the strength of their album Lucky Leaves. More recently the band explored the concept album in miniature with the EP Steve Hears Pile In Malden And Bursts Into Tears, which amplified Krill’s goofy humor and existential dread, best exemplified on the Songs Of The Week-featured single “Turd.” That humor and anxiety gets channeled well in Jake Appet’s music video, which he described as “a journey into the mind of a frustrated Krill fan.” It follows a guy talking to coworkers and going on a pretty bad date where the most awkward moments get caught in an unpleasant jerking loop. Watch it below.
