Watch Butter the Children’s Bleak, ’70s-Groomed ‘Spit It Out’ Video

Butter The Children

Butter the Children resurrect post-punk’s bleak color scheme and often high-speed melancholy in the video for “Spit It Out,” a gauzy highlight from the Brooklyn crew’s upcoming debut EP, True Crime. Directed by Lyle Owerko (previous video credits include Rufus Wainwright), the swift two-and-a-half-minute clip maintains a narrow focus: Frontwoman Inna Mkrtycheva, guitarist Ray Weiss, bassist J Boxer, and drummer Jordyn Blakely glare into a fisheye-lens camera, looking as if they stalked off the streets of Manchester circa 1979.
