After debuting the heavily catchy single "Andrew in Drag"
alongside its compelling music video counterpoint, you might not be surprised to find that The Magnetic Fields
haven't dialed back the weirdness at all. Their second single off of Love At The Bottom of The Sea
titled, "Quick!" features Stephin Merritt's strange lyrics and and even stranger music video. If anyone knows what the "mating calls of sarcastic sharks" sound like, it's probably The Magnetic Fields.
The music video features some trash cans, face scabs and human and snail romantic tension, then there's a secret ending. Spoiler: the snail is a dude. The Magnetic Fields' music videos always put me into a state of genuine wonderment, but it would probably be a little disappointing if they didn't. Love At The Bottom of The Sea
is out now via Merge.
