Watch Kimya Dawson and Aesop Rock’s The Uncluded get weird with fingernails in the video for “Scissorhands”

on March 06, 2013, 9:52am


As previously noted, underground rapper Aesop Rock and The Moldy Peaches’ Kimya Dawson have teamed up to form the (unlikely) duo The Uncluded, and plan to release their debut album, Hokey Fight, on May 7th via Rhymesayers. This week the pair follow up their first single, “Earthquake”, with “Scissorhands”.

The new cut proves yet again that, despite the oddity of their collaboration, the melding of Aesop’s rapid, witty flow and Dawson’s quirky, gentle folk somehow makes sense in a weirdly charming kind of way. Check out the track via its strange, fingernail art-themed (yes, that’s a thing!) video below.
