Immensely strange, in a good way. Stereogum recaps:
Last time we wrote about L.A.-based Babes, they were really turned on. Apparently, the five-piece is still revved up because their new video, directed by Sarah Hamblin, features a handful of men (possibly the band members) dancing suggestively in slow-motion, wearing speedos and assless chaps. The men appear to be auditioning for something in front of unamused singer Sarah Rayne Leigh, whose inner monologue corresponds with the song’s melancholy “life is pointless” lyrical theme. The only glimmer of interest Leigh shows is when one speedoed man shows up and covers himself in gold glitter, but promptly pisses her off by throwing silver glitter in her face. Leigh then lunges at him, still in slow motion, and rips off his mustache. End scene. Under this ruckus lies the band’s oozingly slow synth and Leigh’s timeless voice. Around 1:45, the video also features a short cameo from Leigh’s ex-boyfriend Harris Wittels, the late comedian, actor, and writer, best known for his work on Parks And Recreation.
