Ty Segall Flaunts Flesh in His New Video, "Thank God for Sinners"
Only three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and new Ty Segall material. Garage rock's most omnipresent overachiever just dropped his flesh-flaunting new video for "Thank God for Sinners," directed by former VICE associate producer/VICE-fam-forever Matt Yoka. Yoka, who also directed Segall's "Goodbye Bread" video, had this to say about the concept behind the clip:
I had the time of my life making Ty's "Goodbye Bread" video and was anxious to make another. When I heard "Thank God For Sinners," the song pretty much demanded an epic video accompaniment. I thought that packing every frame with flesh would convey and parody the cultural belief: skin = sin. Because synchronized swimming, The Rockettes, and Busby Berkeley are awesome, I wanted to choreograph the skin in that vein. I told the performers to act as if Thing from Adams Family had been turned into a zombie. As for Ty getting his tongue ripped out... it just needed to happen.
But Yoka's much more than just Ty's right-hand video man. Matt followed Black Lips around the Middle East—hitting Egypt, Lebannon, United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Cyrpus, and more—documenting their trailblazing "rock 'n' roll tour of diplomacy." Watch the Lips party for peace in the Middle East below:
