A Giant Dog – “Sex & Drugs” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Texas quintet A Giant Dog are set to drop their cleverly-titled album Pile later this spring. Today, they share the first video off the album for the bouncy “Sex & Drugs.” The song is dense mix of springy guitar strums, bright vaudeville-esque piano, and shimmer galore balanced by rumbling drums and bass. Director John Valley’s video is pure energy, featuring the band silver-faced in all-white everything performing the track in repetitive, jerky motions. It is just as frenetic as the song, giving you a taste of how difficult it is to play at such a skittering pace but maintain the precision for it not to careen out of control. Get some good “Sex & Drugs” below.

Pile is out 5/6 via Merge. Pre-order is available here.
