Xiu Xiu have released a music video for their new song “Sad Mezcalita.” The track appears on OH NO, the group’s new LP of duets that also arrived today. “Sad Mezcalita” features Sharon Van Etten, who makes a cameo in the music video directed by Xiu Xiu’s Angela Seo. Check it out below.
In a statement, Seo said that the spare, noir style of the video is a “tribute to the loss, crime, bleakness, dreams, and tensions” present within the song. Jamie Stewart added:
OH NO also includes duets with Chelsea Wolfe, Alice Bag, Owen Pallett, Twin Shadow, and more. Xiu Xiu’s previous LP was 2019’s Girl With Basket of Fruit.
