metz_the_swimmerTo coincide with the release of Metz’s new album, simply titled II, the band have released a brand new video for “The Swimmer”. Believe me, this is a great album, and this track is a good example of how the band has branched out a bit, gaining accessibility without sacrificing the aggression and attitude of their previous album.

The video itself is shot like a series of gifs, yes you read that right. We follow a man and his journey to being baptized through a series of jerky, looped-out sequences which only gets more chaotic and hypnotizing as the video progresses.

You can get Metz’s II right now, at the Sub Pop store. Visit the band’s website for tour dates and more. via
