clipping. – “Get Up” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

L.A. noise rap trio clipping. have once again teamed up with director Carlos Lopez Estrada, who also did the memorable videos for “Work Work” and “Inside Out.” Their next partnership isn’t as flashy as either of those, but the video for “Get Up,” co-directed by Cristina Bercovitz, is just as unsettling: with a minimalism and restraint that echoes their music, the camera stays on rapper Daveed Diggs the whole time. We follow him in the last moments of his life as blood slowly pools on his white shirt — alternating between dark red and bright light, we can see Diggs quivering in fear. It’s a quietly disturbing video, and very effective. You can watch below.

CLPPNG is out now on Sub Pop.
