Eloquent delight may be the best way to describe the sounds of Deerhoof. Since their inception they’ve delivered wondrous tones throughout their enigmatic sound. With live shows that rival no one, the quirky and playful nature make them one of the more important bands around today. On their new video for the song “Damaged Eyes Squinting into the Beautiful Overhot Sun” they leave a mark with a video as intriguing as the music itself.
While the song is rife with lush compositions, the same can be said for the video. Full of action and energy, in many ways you’d expect nothing less from any other band of this caliber. While the narrative is a bit off kilter, the imagery matches well with the energetic drive of the song, pairing the two collectively together. The cinematic touches, the long charachter studies and the far away shots make the video a winner, while the animated sequence at the end fits just about right.
The video can be seen above. The song is available to stream on all streaming sites. Their album Future Teenage Cave Artists is available on various formats directly from Joyful Noise Recordings. Deerhoof will appear at Canela Party in Torremolinos, Spain on August 11 through 14.
