Those who've experienced the phenomenon known as "Brainfreeze" know that it feels exactly how the distorted humans in the Fuck Buttons clip above look. Your head feels out of proportion to the rest of your body, your faculties are overwhelmed by a dull yet piercing pain, and you're gripped with the fear that things might not ever be the same again. That awful ache happens to be the title of the first song from the third album by the U.K. death-tronic drone duo — Slow Focus, an Essential slab of fuzz and fritz that the band members themselves broke down for us at one point.

Of "Brainfreeze," Benjamin John Power explained: "I don’t really see it as your stereotypical electronic percussion sounds. It actually comes from more of a live sound… It’s not like we’re going for a rock sound, but the whole track needed to be massive." Indeed, it is. Massive, and also somehow claustrophobic, which dovetails nicely with the visuals above. Enjoy that above, and also be sure to review Fuck Buttons' tour dates, along with their spot-on remix of Moby's Wayne Coyne-assisted "The Perfect Life."
