SPEEDY ORTIZ Debut “American Horror” Video

SPEEDY ORTIZ Debut their new video for their single "American Horror" Speedy Ortiz have also Added More Shows With EX HEX, they play 08/02 in Philadelphia

Speedy Ortiz are  finally releasing the video for their single “American Horror” today. You can stream it below. The video, long in the works from director Peter Binswanger and cinematographer Stephen Tringali, is a “a pop culture fever dream set inside the minds of Speedy Ortiz”. The band, in conjunction with Adult Swim, also recently offered up a brand new single that is still available for streaming here. And last but not least, Speedy Ortiz is currently in the process of working out new material and prepping for their third trip to Europe this year, all the while adding tour dates with Ex Hex to their previously announced fall tour. Check below for the latest list of appearances.

On their latest EP Real Hair, the band sets a course between the knotty discord of debut album Major Arcana and the pop bonafides of the preceding Sports EP. Recorded and mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Radiohead), the new EP finds them subtly adding new techniques to their songbook. Guitarists Sadie Dupuis and Matt Robidoux bring on additional guitar effects to color the roundabout feel of “Oxygal,” while bassist Darl Ferm and drummer Mike Falcone hit hard to deliver the jump-in-the-pit urgency of “American Horror”.

From the vocal melodies to the no-nonsense guitar turns, this is Speedy’s catchiest outing yet, drawing inspiration from contemporary Top 40 and R&B radio in addition to their regular arsenal of guitar rock. Dupuis’ lyrics continue to address concerns about identity, representation, and their misalignment, this time from a new angle: “While the last album was kind of a breakup jam, these songs are a lot more introspective-myself dealing with and talking to and making sense of myself,” she says.
