Those Frog Eyes. We knew they had a nurse in their ranks, but what fine actors! In the Victoria band’s first ever video — directed by frontman Carey Mercer and edited by Sikwaya Condon — hobos hang by the wrong side of the tracks where folks get shanked, people spit, and Carey looks incredibly anguished (Oscar nod?). Then one day a dude carrying a golden horn roll into town and offers ‘em a way out.
Into a battle of the bands? Or is that just a really divisive jam session? As far as product placement and the video’s trenchant analysis of art and life: Try and spot the fish eyes and horse eyes. And horse cigarette.
