I think the battle for grossest music video of the year has already been won: the video for Cloud Nothings’ effervescent “Should Have” features couples sucking on each other’s ponytails, even to the point of puking in some cases. I’m not sure what this has to do with the song, but I do know that ponytail sucking, whether or not it’s a visual metaphor for boning, is pretty messed up. It’s going to take a late year Flaming Lips video featuring fetuses and Wayne Coyne’s beard to top this one.
Don’t let this dissuade you from getting hip to Cloud Nothings self-titled debut, which is out now via Carpark. [P4K]
