In the first music video in support of Mess, Liars reduce, deconstruct, and distort reality via a repetitious, cycled sequence of the trio, placed in the midst of an anarchic situation, slowly retreating backwards up a set of steps. With the end of each cycle comes some form of camera trickery, whether it be a different viewing angle, different computer-generated surroundings and props, or the blurring together of previously-seen elements in a sort of glitchy artifact soup. It's a genius concept that perfectly matches the amped-up aesthetic of the album. It doesn't do much good trying to explain it, though; so go on and press the play button right up there - and be prepared for the ensuing perceptual overload.

"What A Mess"

Mess is out now, and in case you haven't heard, or forgot, it's awesome:
