Preoccupations – “Anxiety” [NSFW]

Well, this’ll give you nightmares.

The band—all bug-eyed and psycho killer-ish—is frightening enough, but we also have to deal with multiple masked weirdos, astral projections, abandoned dolls, and bodies floating down a river.

Is that Sasquatch at 1:48?

“Anxiety” comes from Preoccupations’ (née Viet Cong) self-titled debut.

Preoccupations – “Degraded”

The band formerly known as Viet Cong has softened more than a little. This one’s from their debut album (self-titled) as Preoccupations.

This trip follows in the footsteps of Suuns’ “brainwash” video, though it’s a little less Minecraft, a little more Visualizer. Officially, it depicts “an encounter with the primordial ruins of a post-human landscape, where sentient sculptural artifacts attempt to reassemble themselves.”

Preoccupations comes out in just under a month.
