British techno stalwarts Orbital (Paul and Phil Hartnoll) have just released Wonky, their first album in eight years, and here's the cat-filled video for the title track with MC Lady Leshurr (the first single, "New France," features Zola Jesus).
In the scenario, singing cats drive a black-clad Brit crazy. I couldn't say whether they're meant to be real or imaginary, but I like the basic idea, even if the Clutch Cargo FX could be a little better—it's too obvious the creatures have CGI mouths—though the disorienting camera work is a plus. The song isn't bad either.
Below: videos for "Wonky," "New France," and "Never."
Previous Orbital collaborators include Alison Goldfrapp and Metallica's Kirk Hammett.
Surprisingly poignant. Lesson: Kids, don't let your stuffed lions grow up to be club rats.
