The new clip dives into the new ASMR slime phenomenon, and features YouTube sensation CuteKid4950.
“If we’re not on top of the zeitgeist, we’re probably slightly behind it,” the band say of the new clip. “Simply put, the YouTube slime craze has left us beguiled. What is our connection to these polymer based environmental hazards? You can tell us it’s ASMR all you like, but we sense there’s something deeper. Amniotic fluid? Anal retentiveness? You tell us.
“To let this all play out in a vlog seems to underplay the importance in this bizarre textural dance. To quote Tarkovsky on Monument Valley ‘Only Americans can be so stupid — shooting only bang-bang films in this very spiritual setting.’ With our video for Never See The Signs, we attempt to elevate the slime video to a higher status. Could slime become an Oscar category or a module at film school? The answers are only just revealing themselves.”
