Music Video: Spectacular lo-fi music video from Seattle girl band Chastity Belt

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Have all the high-budget music videos you want, I’ll argue to the grave that the lo-fi ones are always better. This one is a prime example of perfect song-to-video ratio, with the incredible Chastity Belt wailing out a terrific track companied by a video that totally represents what they’re about. Of course it may be something to do with the band having a helping hand in the making-of, but if that’s the case then even better! Bands and directors should work together in perfect harmony, that’s where the real corkers come from. I love the bit where they’re all kind of floating in the night sky, it reminds me of that much-loved E-17 video. I thoroughly advise you to stop what you’re doing and go and buy the new Chastity Belt record while you still can.
