With their new video, Modest Mouse do something indie rock bands almost never do: made a really, really literal video.
When the lampshade is not just on someone’s head but on fire, the party has gotten out of control. This video goes there and then makes it that extra mile to a really dark place, which is a speciality of Modest Mouse’s music.
Most notable here is the sheer amount of male frontal nudity. Especially since there is no female frontal nudity at all. It’s a welcome flip of the script and, frankly, more realistic for a house party that’s spiraled out of control.
