Toronto punks Dilly Dally have shared an ace new video for ‘Snakehead’.
The stop-start clip pairs up with the group’s recent set-opener, and find the four-piece in ultimate self-referential mode. “Music videos are bullshit,” they claim just seconds into the, er, music video, “What a waste of time, what a waste of money.” From there on out, they go all-in on their boredom, ironically producing one of the best videos of the year so far in the process.
It comes alongside a massive world tour for the Dilly, full dates for which are below the player.
‘Snakehead’ is taken from ‘Sore’, their phenomenal debut album. In the current, March 2016 issue of DIY, we catch Dilly Dally at the tail end of their first overseas tour, finding them on the verge of becoming one of the most vital groups around.

Dilly Dally will play The Great Escape (19th-21st May), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit diymag.com/presents for more information.
