Some people (i.e. the perpetually frightened and our mothers) have the impression that life in the big city is dangerous. Avant pop duo Gauntlet Hair are using the music video for “Keep Time” to send those people a simple message: you bet your bottom dollar it is! Directed by Bernardo Pantoja and Skyler Stevenson (of the production company Wooden Lens), the clip shows masked fiends and mutated freaks running around Portland’s “seedier” areas, breaking shit, throwing fireworks at people, and generally causing loads of chaos. Reflect on the safety and warmth of your small-town existence by watching the video below (courtesy of SPIN.com).
Gauntlet Hair’s self-titled debut is out now. The band is also currently on tour, with select shows supporting Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Check out the entire tour schedule below.
