BEST NEW VIDEO: HOLY FUCK - TOM TOM

5/29/16
Holy Fuck - Tom Tom

Holy Fuck decided to do something this year they haven’t done in 6, release an album. The sublime Congrats kicks off the long Memorial Day weekend, headlined by the standout single, “Tom Tom.” As we just now got around to consuming the album, we also just got around to watching the Michael Leblanc-directed video for “Tom Tom.”

Shot in Romania and cast by locals, according to Leblanc they just went around the streets of Zarnesti asking people if they wanted to be in a music video. Knowing some locals is a surefire way to ensure an “authentic” experience abroad, and that’s exactly what Holy Fuck and Leblanc get in this video that follows an actual father and son around their hometown. The video itself is surreal, tense, and dramatic. It also clocks in at under four minutes, so really you have no excuse not to watch it. And that double negative means you positively need to see this.
