Xiu Xiu’s ‘Jenny GoGo’ Is a Jarring Beauty
Since 2002, the ever-experimenting Xiu Xiu have been constantly pushing the boundaries of what can be done in rock music, adding a wide dichotomy of harsh noise and sweet melodies from album to album. This February, they're putting out FORGET, and today you can get the vibe of the LP with their newly released video for "Jenny GoGo," directed by Emp.Bikutoru. The video is darkly animated, with crudely drawn characters appearing in the midst of a static-y background. The music buzzes along in a sinister hum while the characters dance disturbingly. It's the kind of weirdness you'd hope for from a Xiu Xiu visual.
Watch the video below, and pre-order the record from Polyvinyl.
