Black and White

Album: Sunbathing Animal (2014)
  • songfacts ®
  • The black-and-white video for this ominous, finger-snapping track was directed by Austin Brown and Johann Rashid and inspired by the experimental films of William Burroughs and Brion Gysin.

    The clip features a long walk through lead singer Andrew Savage's Brooklyn neighborhood. According to a press release, the visual is "meant to represent the depth and complexity of the personal stories which exist in a simple city stroll."

    The video ends with a shot of Savage's window, the same one that his cat sat near to sunbathe in Parquet Courts' previous visual.
