Fuck Buttons Turn Dancer Into Human Lava Lamp in Eerie ‘The Red Wing’ Video

Fuck Buttons, "The Red Wing," video

Fuck Buttons are going their own way and it’s taking the British digi-gaze roarers to a dark, heady place. Unlike their last two albums, the duo’s upcoming Slow Focus is self-produced — 2009’s Tarot Sport was helmed by techno innovotor Andrew Weatherall, and 2008’s Street Horrrsing was overseen by Mogwai guitarist John Cummings. Even in edited form, the new long-player’s first taste, “The Red Wing,” is a violent shift, mixing threatening textures with block-rockin’ beats and unidentifiable skronk, though the group’s distorted-goblin vocals are notably absent. The video too was done in-house, by Fuck Buttons half Andrew Huang, and shows a woman dancing in slow-motion as she’s put through dizzyingly refracting visual effects. It’s a spare but fitting treatment for the song, which will also be available in full as a limited-edition gold vinyl single via ATP on June 25. Slow Focus follows on July 23.
