Viet Cong, the Calgary-based quartet recently short-listed for Canadas’ prestigious Polaris Music Prize, have revealed their brand new video for ’Bunker Buster’, directed by Yoonha Park.
It’s a heady mish-mash of twitchy-faced mannequins, smoking starlets and milky blood. Who are you to resist?
If Viet Cong’s ’Bunker Buster’ elicits the images of a nighttime urban hellscape littered with lost souls, it does so with its dissected, angular rhythms and existential lyrics. Taking these visual cues even further, director Yoonha Park gives the song a grainy, sci-fi treatment, taking influences from the likes of Wong Kar-Wai, Philip K. Dick, and Lars von Trier in his video for the song.
