(Apple) Watch: Battles unveil technicolour ‘Dot Net’ video

Battles unveil technicolour ‘Dot Net’ video

Specifically designed to look “dope” on an Apple Watch, the new video is suitably glitchy madness.

New album ‘La Di Da Di’ is out in the world, but Battles’ madness shows no signs of slowing if their new ‘Dot Net’ video is anything to go by.

Yes or No?” That bit we get.
