Dilly Dally – “Snake Head” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

SXSW is an extremely ADHD environment in which I rarely watch an entire performance by any band, but I watched two Dilly Dally sets all the way through this year because their live show is just that good. They’re taking it all over North America this year, and we’ve got some new dates below along with the video for “Snake Head” from last year’s Sore. This is the song they’ve been opening with on tour, and it serves as a hell of an introduction, an infectiously ugly mess of howling and pounding and melodic lead guitar. Scott Cudmore’s clip finds the band having a humorous subtitled conversation in a shitty apartment. All the bands out there making garbage music videos should take note: This is a great example of how you can make an entertaining video on a low budget. Watch below.
