Pop experimentalists Xiu Xiu have shared a new video for the title track from their most recent album, Forget.
The video stars Xiu Xiu’s Angela Seo as a performer who continually gets heckled by an audience member before brawling with her while the crowd looks on. Seo says, “I find working in the entertainment industry grotesque and mortifying. So many people in it have the horrifying combination of delusional self-grandeur and nauseating insecurities, but I still want to make and play music and art so all I can do is laugh at myself and understand that the grotesque, mortifying absurdities are just part of doing anything decent.”
Watch the new video below:
Xiu Xiu is on tour now, and playing Union Pool in Brooklyn twice this Saturday. Xiu Xiu’s live performances are cathartic and revelatory, and not to be missed.
