Split Single – “Monolith” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Split Single is a supergroup of sorts: The band consists of drummer Jon Wurster from Superchunk and the Mountain Goats, Britt Daniel of Spoon, and frontman Jason Narducy from Bob Mould’s band, Superchunk, and the owner of some outrageously sexy elbows. Split Single released their new LP, Fragmented World, in April, and today we get a video for album track “Monolith,” a ferocious rock anthem that asks, “How much can you peel away?” A lot, apparently, because the video is as simple as it gets — Narducy, clad in a red velvet cape and a boyish crown, sticks his head out of a car window screaming the lyrics to the track, but the camera is rotated at a 90-degree angle the whole time, creating a skewed sensation for the viewer. Watch.

Fragmented World is out now via Inside Outside Records.
