Video of the Moment #1804: Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett has just revealed a new single titled ‘Dead Fox’ from her album ‘Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit’.  On the surface, the song is one of the lightest and most upbeat tracks on the record, but its subject matter is somewhat weightier, dealing with “the destructive powers of big business (and) the death and destruction caused by corporations.”

The accompanying video for ‘Dead Fox’ was directed and animated by Rory Kerr and Paul Ruttledge in response to Barnett’s subversive concept of animals taking revenge on human beings.  The vivid, childlike animation seems innocent at first, much like the musical quality of the song itself, but it takes a grisly turn as animated foxes, emus and sharks in a variety of vehicles are shown glibly running down human pedestrians.

As announced earlier in the week, Courtney Barnett will be touring the UK in November and December 2015.
