♫♪  Xiu Xiu - “A knife in the Sun”

Oh, cool! Xiu Xiu actually took a normal route here with their music video for “A knife in the Sun.” Noh mask? No big deal. Harsh shade of the typically pleasant color pink. Strawberries hanging and casual chewing. All chill. I imagine this is what one of the closets behold in the Xiu Xiu practice space. They call this person inside “A knife” — which I heard directly from a good source (not really) that s/he was the influence for the masterpiece Knife Play — and that closet is called “the Sun.” THEN, I heard when “A knife in the Sun” looks outside, s/he sees itself in the real, black and white from that pink effect, and always climbing shit. Whatevz. ALSO, Xiu Xiu practices in the middle of nowhere and is super secret about their music. Like, did you get a leak of Angel Guts: Red Classroom prior to its release? ‘Cause I didn’t think you did. Who is this? I’m Xiu Xiu. You are C Monster. So what about the WE?

It’s probably somewhere with “A knife in the Sun.” But, for more [“GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN”] answers, snag that new Xiu Xiu LP Angel Guts: Red Classroom off Polyvinyl Record Company. The word “relentless” used to be in the Xiu Xiu title before they started doing festivals in 2002. PEACE!
