Suckers – “Black Sheep” Video

The stomping, Modest Mouse gone Glasslands Wild Smile standout “Black Sheep” gets a Todd Yeager directed video and it’s exactly what a Suckers video should look like: colors and kitsch, green screens and ’80s VHS era visual tropes rendered in digital-rate resolution. The band’s wrapped a tour with Local Natives (dig the commemorative remix) and has a few shows with Passion Pit and Tokyo Police Club on the books, then a long tour with the men of Menomena, but not before blowing out MHOW this weekend for an album release party. Bodies: kept moving.
