Sylvan Esso – “H.S.K.T.” Video

If you’ve spent some time with Sylvan Esso’s self-titled debut album — and if you haven’t, you should — you probably remember “H.S.K.T.” as the digital hoedown song, the one with the “head, shoulders, knees, toes” hook. The duo says they wrote the song about Miley Cyrus, and Hercules And Love Affair remixed it lately. Today, “H.S.K.T.” gets a video from the directing team Endless Endless. The whole clip is just images of the lyrics being projected onto dancing bodies, including those of Sylvan Esso members Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn. There’s not a lot to it, but the video has a sense of motion that really works. Watch it below.
