The new video for Yellow Ostrich's song "The Shakedown," from their sophomore LP Strange Land, premiered yesterday on NYLON, and it sees the band going low budget. Directed by the band themselves, this is what lead singer/guitarist Alex Schaaf had to say: "We made this video ourselves in Michael's basement. With no budget and minimal gear, we explored the beauty of darkness. The white light represents the past, and the black light represents the future. Should I stay or should I go?" Watch it above.
