BROOKLYN VEGAN PREMIERES "TABITHA" VIDEO
As you might expect from Ellis's résumé, Netherlands is a pretty strange band. They play gritty, high-energy punk/metal, anchored by a huge distorted synth bass tone...even stranger is the video for "Tabitha", which we're debuting in this post. Instead of a narrative, it offers a crazy-quilt of surreal images: claymation animal heads exploding, psychedelic color washes, and grotesque line animations of melting human faces and bursting pimples. The video's got a sickly, sugar-high energy that matches Ellis's yowling vocals and caveman riffs perfectly.
