Viet Cong spew out "Silhouettes" video

Viet Cong have just dropped their debut record, and to celebrate, they've lobbed out the AV gorgeousness of the "Silhouettes" video.

Featuring ex-members of Women, the band's self-titled debut is an impressive endeavour, and in our 8.5/10 review we said:

"There is no denying the raw power of Viet Cong, whether you are familiar with Women or not (if not, you definitely need to go away and listen to Public Strain - a modern classic), anyone with punk in their heart will connect with this album. The album as a whole seems reflective of the times we currently live in. Away from all the technological, medicinal and social advances of the age, in the forefront of our minds we are constantly (made) aware of human misery and degradation. Death is our common denominator. Death is our malefactor and great unifier. The best albums allow us to ruminate on life’s big questions, giving insight not only into the mind of the artist but reflecting the sentiments of the beholder, and Viet Cong does exactly that."

Viet Cong is out now on Jagjaguwar.
