Masturbating Puppets in the New Unknown Mortal Orchestra Video

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Mon, Mar 4, 2013 at 11:15 AM


Unknown Mortal Orchestra have a new video for the track "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)," a song highlighted by some splendidly circular guitar lines. It's one of many highlights of UMO's current album II, and the video was done by British artists/puppeteers Becky and Joe Pelling. The story begins with the indelible image of a puppet masturbating at another puppet who's taking a shower in the building across the way, and if that phrase doesn't hook you, nothing will.

Over the next couple weeks, UMO make their way from Toronto down to SXSW in Austin, then up to Boise's Treefort Music Fest. They perform a hometown show at the Aladdin on April 5.
