New Video: Wavves – “Afraid of Heights”

New Video Wavves – Afraid of Heights

To celebrate the release of their new album, Afraid Of Heights, via Mom + Pop/Warner Bros, Wavves have shared a creepy new video for their title-track. Directed by BLACK // DOCTOR (Chris Black and MISTERDOCTOR), the video depicts two chubby and hairy cross-dressers painting the town red, literally. The video is weird and we wouldn’t expect anything less from audacious duo consisting of guitarist Nathan Williams and bassist Stephen Pope. If you actually listen to the lyrics (“I’m ugly, you’re boring … I’ll always be on my own”), they’re kind of sad, but the bar scenes in the video keep you laughing. Needless to say, the final minute of the video is super creepy, but rad — some may say it’s disturbing, a tad Silence of the Lambs meets Dexter
