Happening This Week: Video Release by Godchilla

Happening This Week: Video Release by Godchilla

Published October 24, 2016

Like the suburbs, like the smiling baby doll, like Christmas. There is something inherently creepy in that which is all too perfect. Sometimes its better to confront the dark and “illogical” badnesses…and then write a song about them.

Reykjavík’s Godchilla dredge out our inner delinquencies in their latest single “Bum a Smoke / Trash a Car.” The song was written as “an ode to juvenile delinquency, being bored, and the satan-in-itself that doing illogical ‘bad’ stuff is,” Hjalti of Godchilla writes. A song “to spice up the boredom of being stuck in your tracks in a safe and logical life.” The single is the first off of their upcoming album ‘Hypnopolis.’

On Friday October 28 the group premiers the single’s new video at a release party and performance. Ingi Kristján, who created and designed the video, describes it as a “five minute journey into the uncanny valley of paper mache dolls, culminating in a ritual of ego death in the plastic dockside heterotopia of Bryggjuhverfi, Grafarvogur.”

For those daring and curious, premier party begins at 20:00 at Gallery Port. Performances by Godchilla and Skrattar follow the screening. Early drinks provided.
