Ukrainian band Brunettes Shoot Blondes new self-directed and self-produced video for “HIPS” begins with a model putting a coin into the head of a pigeon character, taking a polaroid with two models before pushing out the finished, floppy image through a bolted slit in his ass, and this is just the start of the video. To say the video for “HIPS” is a wild ride almost feels like an understatement.
The song, which is equal parts Hot Chip as it is Arctic Monkeys, and video continues as we are fully transplanted into BSB’s pastel and strange world full of aesthetically pleasing colors and images that flow throughout the entire video: open-circuit synths that double as clothing storage, beautiful women playing football and ping pong, adorable dogs basking in pink lights, Gameboys, mouse traps, and funky, choreographed dance routines. The band has built the perfect party house and is already raging. “HIPS” serves as your invitation to come join them on the dancefloor.
