Battles’ ‘The Yabba’ Video Is a Technicolor Daydream
A surrealist performance clip for the 'La Di Da Di' single
Battles will release La Di Da Di, their first album since 2011’s Gloss Drop, next week. To celebrate they’ve shared a music video for that record’s lead single “The Yabba.” Directed by Roger Guàrdia, the band performing in a variety of environs (including the technicolor space you see above), segmenting oranges, watching walking strangers, and more. It’s appropriately surreal for the writhing art-rock that the trio makes, so check it out here in advance of La Di Da Di’s September 18 release on Warp.
