Dirty Projectors’ song “Offspring Are Blank” sounds like two different songs put together, so it’s appropriate that its music video looks the part.
DP’s frontman David Longstreth directed the clip, which features him walking through a field of garbage and dug-up dirt and then rocking out in its original backdrop of picturesque, steep, lush hills. He dons a tox-suit with a three-piece underneath. Dude works hard and plays hard here in dystopia.
“Offspring Are Blank” are the first of three videos debuting this week from Dirty Projectors’ 2012 “Swing Lo Magellan”: “The Socialites” and “Swing Lo Magellan” will debut tomorrow and Friday. They’re all part of the shoot that resulted in short film “Hi Custodian.” Watch that trippy trip below, too.
The indie rockers will be taking to the stage at Carnegie Hall in New York — a rarity for rock acts — on Jan. 11, and will be releasing “Offspring” as a limited 7″, backed by new tune “There’s a Fire.”
