News Watch: METZ Reveal Crazy Animated Video For ‘Get Off’

High-energy, heavy-riffing track from the Canadian Sub Pop trio gets a pretty absurd cartoon video featuring Smahmpy the Flying Retriever.

The Origins Of Smahmpy the Flying Retriever is the message that greets you at the start of METZ' video for 'Get Off'. Interesting. Maybe the rest of the video will including transformation, flying cars, futuristic gadgetry, and death... all in cartoon form?

By Jove - it does! If that sounds ludicrous and absurd, that's because it darned well is.

Maybe the weirdness of the video, which is for the song taken from their Sub Pop-released self-titled debut album, is the effect of touring the UK with Fucked Up and Titus Andronicus?

Mabye it's a projection of their excitement for their forthcoming headline November tour of the UK?

Maybe they wanted to make something even more difficult on the eyes than their last video for track 'You're Wasted'?

Who's to say. What we do know is you should definitely watch METZ' video for the high energy, heavy riffin' 'Get Off' after it premiered on Stereogum below:

Live dates:

22 Manchester, Deaf Institute
23 Glasgow, Broadcast
