Deerhunter's crackling, beautifully abrasive "Back to the Middle" puts a twist on retro indie-rock, and now the Monomania cut has an equally inventive video. British actor Durassie Kiangangu, dressed in '60s girl-group garb, dances in shimmering black and white, shaking that shiny slip while singing along to Bradford Cox's pained vocals. The simple shots make for a captivating visual, with a colorful surprise coming midway through.
