Focusing on a mix of Americana and surreal Roschach imagery, the video for Death To The Uptight, directed by Dusan Sekulovic, is a black and white adventure featuring a cast of quirky characters.
The Grahams 'Bite My Tongue' by Dusan Sekulovic
When a video opens with slices of pizza flying into the artists' tracksuited doppelgängers across the road, you know you're in for a good time. Partners Alyssa and Doug Graham then tear up the town, snatching inflatable guitars from kids, pushing over hipsters mid-yoga - hipster tipping, yay - and just being a whirlwind of annoying chaos everywhere they go.
It's a fun ride.
"When we talked ideas I had this vision of flying pizza slices. The actual track was inspired by a disturbing encounter the Grahams had in the Mojave, and this was their Rock and Roll revenge song. So I flipped things around and opened with Doug and Alyssa’s doppelgängers hurling pizzas at themselves.
"I did not want the video to be smooth — lately I’ve developed stabilized-slow-motion-music-video fatigue — so I decided to shoot handheld from a wheelchair rolling backwards. We shot this in one day, over four stretches of pavement."
