We’re not quite sure why we haven’t written about NY duo Pistol Shrimp before as they’re pretty amazing and their début EP, Heart, has had quite a bit of play around these parts. We’re not omnipotent though and occasionally things do slip through then new. Suffice to say you should all check them out; starting with their new video for the deeply groovy EP track Taking Names.
The clip was directed & Animated by Stefan Hollenbach. It’s got a bit of a lyric video vibe to it, and you know how much lyric videos are the scourge of the music world, but when it;s not being a lyric video it becomes a wonderfully realised quirky animated voyage that’s hard not to love.
Pistol Shrimp’s Heart EP is out now and available to download for free here.
