New Video: The Surreal Animated and Hyper Aggressive Visuals for Cowtown’s “Tweak”

Over the past couple of months I’ve written a bit about Leeds, UK-based indie rock/post-punk trio Cowtown. And if you’ve been frequenting this site over that period of time, you may recall that the British trio comprised of David Michale Shields (drums), Hilary Knott (bass, keys and vocals) and Johnathan Nash (guitar,vocals) have developed a reputation for angular, super caffeinated post-punk that draws from Gang of FourDEVOTalking Heads over the course of three full-length albums.

Clocking in at 92 seconds, Paranormal Romance’s second and latest single “Tweak” sounds as though it were indebted to the Ramones and 90s alt rock, as the the trio pairs propulsive and thundering drumming with blistering power chords and an anthemic and infectious “oh oh oh” at the hook that you can imagine a crowded and sweaty bunch of kids yelling lustily while moshing — and with a youthful abandon.

The recently released animated video by Molly Kaplan pokes fun at cartoons, the relentless barrage of commercials we’re inundated with on a regular basis — but with neon bright colors and a surreal sense of humor.
