Parquet Courts - "Sunbathing Animal" Video

One of our favorite punk outfits Parquet Courts shared their first video and title track from their much-anticipated follow-up to Light Up Gold. The video features frontman Andrew Savage's cat Frida getting stoned on a normal afternoon. Don't worry though, as director Andy Capper explains below, no cats were given harmful chemicals during the shoot.

Every afternoon [Frida] takes a nap in that spot, but that afternoon she knew she was being observed. So I created a special tea that I found on a cat lady website that was full of herbs that could allegedly make a cat sleepy. You got some valerian root, some poppy seed extract, skullflower caps, chamomile.... I gave that to her and she was kinda being a bit more chill but she was still moving around a bit too much. And I guess we basically made the sofa area of my apartment into a cat paradise in order to get her to perform. We had bird songs playing on the iPhone, the window was open for bird noises outside. We put some food on the couch and then finally some cat nip."

The LP, Sunbathing Animal, is due out on June 3rd, 2014.
