Active Child - "Playing House" Video

Earlier in the summer, we posted “Playing House,” a sort of summit meeting of forlorn bedroom-indie falsetto addicts Active Child and How To Dress Well. That track now has a video, and whether it’s intended or not, the thing comes off as being very, very silly. It’s full of cheesed-out smoke effects and quivering tear-lined eyeballs and overblown lip-sync theatrics, and our friend Chris Weingarten has already rendered exactly the verdict you’d expect. Isaac Ravishankara directs. Watch it below.

  1. Three Times One Minus One!

  2. These guys make the best 90s R&B. I feel like All4one would have done a video like this, but their song would have sucked.

  3. easy contender for song of the year

  4. ugh soo good
