Watch: Vuvuvultures – “Stay Still”

15 Feb

vuvuvultures stay still

Let’s face it, Vuvuvultures have never been shy about making videos that are a bit, well, weird. In ”Pills Week” they marched off the face of the earth and out into the universe where Harmony gathered in additional limbs from her bandmates (no, really); then in ”I’ll Cut You” she had razor sharp toothed mouths where her eyes should be.

If those were ‘you might want to spend some time with a therapist’ weird, then their latest video, for “Stay Still” (a track we love so much this is the third time we have posted it), is ‘lock in a padded cell and medicate heavily’ crazy.

Where do we even start? With the half man/half fly perhaps? Or the 50’s style housewife with a thing for bug-men? Maybe the dead animal dinner? Or the live bug and maggot side dishes? How about the pun heavy book titles or the random animation two thirds in? We won’t spoil it for you, trust us you need to watch this for yourself, but let’s just say that a TV that turns itself back on is about the sanest thing in this video.

As for the track, well if you have read either of our previous posts you know we love it and that affection hasn’t abated one bit. Last time out we talked about its ”throbbing, grooving bassline [that] pulsates beneath Harmony’s ever so sexy vocals” and ”the futuristic, sci-fi guitar licks and, oh yes, the massive electronic freak-out of an ending”. What has since become apparent is that this is probably their most dance friendly track so far, and by that we mean that each time we hear it we engage in what most people would assume to be some sort of seizure but is actually our attempt to groove.

Watch the video, be a bit weirded out, watch it again, realise its amazing, and then go buy tickets for their single launch show in London on 12 March at The Lexington.

”Stay Still” is due for release on 25 March via the band’s own Energy Snake Records and Cadiz Music. It’s great to see they have finally found a use for the name, Energy Snake too.
