volcano!’s recent comeback single ‘Piñata’ is very, very good. With Dirty Projectors-esque vocals and virtually unplaceable time signatures taken straight from the Don Caballero songbook, it’s as fascinating as it is endlessly frustrating.
Now it has a suitably unsettling video featuring the brutal murder of the eponymous toy by the band – who, judging by appearance alone, seem to be the American answer to the Young Knives. Possibly.
‘Piñata’ is taken from the album of the same name, out on The Leaf Label 4 June.
