Watch a New Video for Xiu Xiu's Collaboration with Liars' Angus Andrew
"Rumpus Room" will appear on the band's new album 'OH NO'
Published Mar 04, 2021Experimental pop explorers Xiu Xiu are about to release their 12th studio album OH NO. Before it arrives in full later this month, they've shared a video for the track "Rumpus Room," which features Liars' Angus Andrew.
As previously reported, OH NO is a collection of duets that includes appearances from the likes of Sharon Van Etten, Owen Pallett, Chelsea Wolfe and Grouper's Liz Harris. But "Rumpus Room" sees the band's Jamie Stewart and Angela Seo team up with Angus Andrew of Liars.
In a statement about the new video Xiu Xiu's Angela Seo had this to say:
Does everyone have a deep personal childhood association with Flamin' Hot Cheetos, or just me? One of the first things I shoplifted as a kid was a bag of FHC. I once bet my cousin I could finish an entire Party Size bag in one sitting; I won the bet but lost my sense of taste for a couple days. I was a latchkey kid and would ditch school and often go to the 7-eleven by our apartment, where some 20-year-old kid who didn't give a crap would be working and watch me play their single arcade game--marvel-capcom-- in the corner as long as I bought a slurpee and FHC. Sometimes in my old teenage journals, I find flamin' red dusted fingerprint smudges among melodramatic poems and fake runaway notes. All that intersected perfectly with the "Rumpus Room" song, and part II story of the video trilogy (1st being "A Bottle of Rum").
Watch the video for "Rumpus Room" below.
OH NO will arrive March 26th via Polyvinyl.
