New Music: Deerhunter, 'Snakeskin'
Atlanta art-rock band Deerhunter announced its seventh LP, Fading Frontier, Sunday, and Monday premiered the abstract video for its lead single, "Snakeskin." The song is a swaggering, infectious piece of summer rock, and frontman Bradford Cox takes that swagger to creepy Deliverance-ian lengths in the video. There might be a connection between dog dreams, an old skull, very dirty bathwater and worn, paint-flecked overalls ... or they might just be parts of the Deerhunter experience.
Fading Frontier comes out Oct. 16 on 4AD.
