BEST NEW VIDEOS: GTA - RED LIPS FT. SAM BRUNO (SKRILLEX REMIX)

GTA - Red Lips (Skrillex Remix)

Skrillex’s music videos tend to play a lot like his music: loud, brash, and otherworldly. His latest music video for his remix of GTA’s “Red Lips” is no exception to the rule.

Directed again by Grant Singer, the duo last teamed up to wreck shop in “Burial,” “Red Lips” is some literal nightmare fuel. Sonny Moore told Pitchfork that he dreamed up this video as a sort of damsel in distress running away from her nightmare. He also told them that the video was aesthetically inspired by movies like The Never Ending Story and The Cell. The ghoulish creatures on display here are a cross between Resident Evil and Pan’s Labyrinth. The damsel in question is actress Anya Taylor Joy, who has to do battle with stone creatures whose heads explode only to give birth to smaller stone creatures, and a host of terrifying double-jointed characters. Look, there’s really no describing this, just watch the damn video.

As for the song itself, it’s quite notably a Skrillex remix and quite notably badass.
