This video features a bunch of girls dribbling VHS goo from their mouths and dancing variously, badly, interpretively, and enthusiastically, in front of several green screen situations, like a kale and onion stir fry, or a school of frantic fish. The song is lifted from the HSY's eponymous EP—which is out this week on Buzz Records—and it sounds riotous and scuzzy and we totally see why these video girls felt compelled to jerk and judder around to it.
The Toronto-based quartet are also on tour and if you're in Brooklyn on September 21, you should definitely go check them out, because that show is going to be extra sweet.
