Skeletons are to indie rock videos in ’09 what bootie girls are to hip-hop clips forever. I have no idea what this means (eat a sandwich?), but it’s a motif we’ve seen in one form or another via Fever Ray, Mi And L’Au, Pictureplane, Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Abe Vigoda, and we’ll stop there. Sunset Rubdown carry on the tradition for Dragonslayer’s “Black Swan.” That said, this one also includes a faceless nude woman, which sorta brings it back to my first sentence. That, and as the accompanying image suggests, it’s gleefully trippy.
