Stealing Sheep – “Deadlock” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Liverpool experimental pop trio Stealing Sheep make a dense, topsy-turvy brand of bubblegum which belies their simplistic lyrics and uncanny ability to implant them in your mental. The band dropped their latest full-length, Not Real, just a few weeks ago, after sharing the title track and matching it with a set of visuals. Now, the band shares a video for “Deadlock,” a tune which playfully grapples with paralyzing self doubt and internal conflict. The Ewan Jones Morris-directed flick is a weird one to say the least. Literal interpretations with the band locked in a grid pattern (both as whole entities and segmented body parts) are mixed with abstract psychoactives for a disorienting experience. Watch.

Not Real is out now via Heavenly Recordings. Purchase on iTunes
