Beck – “Wow” Video
Beck, one of our all-time great music-video surrealists, just dropped a new video for his giddy plastic-funk single “Wow.” The clip, which Beck co-directed with Grady Hall, is a nutso barrage of images: Cowboys riding through a Western town, little kids jumping in front of bright backgrounds, roses with eyeballs, Beck himself dancing in front of a busy intersection. It’s got all the deadpan, dork-funk style of so many of Beck’s prime ’90s videos, and it’s almost a shock to see that style at work today. Watch the video below.
Beck’s new album is reportedly out 10/21 on Capitol.
