Black Lips Premiere Video For RAW MEAT
Self-proclaimed flower punks, The Black Lips, have released the latest video from their 6th studio album, Arabia Mountain (Vice Records). The video for Raw Meat, an undeniably catchy song thanks to the melodic whistling and sharp production by Mark Ronson, chronicles the band as New York City cops on a late shift causing more of a ruckus than the citizens they’ve promised to protect. Featuring Hollywood super-weight Leo Fitzpatrick (The Wire, Kids), model Janell Shirtcliff, cult actress Tennessee Thomas (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World), crisp B&W widescreen photography, and authentic 70’s cop car and uniforms the video is by far the Black Lip’s most beautifully shot video. The clip is the product of a collaboration between the Black Lips, Vice Records, Urban Outfitters, and director Phil Pinto, executive produced by Rachelyn Remz-Porter. It is the fifth installment of the UO Music Video Series, following videos for Spank Rock, The War on Drugs, Beach Fossils, and Toro Y Moi.
