For Your Eyes and Ears: Bloc Party on New Music Weekly

This week’s New Music Weekly video makes your head spin. We’re featuring British indie rockers Bloc Party’s “Obscene” from their new album, The Nextwave Sessions, but the freaky visuals crafted by Tendril might be stealing the 15-second show:

"From the moment we heard the shifting layers of Bloc Party's 'Obscene' we knew things were going to get weird. At the studio we had been experimenting with face tracking and digital doubles and this piece became an experimental platform for some new techniques. The unfiltered visuals are a pretty raw projection of our collective psyche (yes, including the poodle). We aren't completely sure what we've created here, but we love the way it makes us feel."
