[SKOA Premiere] Birds & Batteries - "Be My Girl" (NSFW) (Official Video)

Earlier this month Bay area experimental indie-pop outfit Birds & Batteries released their fourth full-length, Stray Light, out on Eightmaps. If you're into shiny synths, buzzing bass and vocals that are a little reminiscent of Peter Gabriel, these guys are about to win you over in a big way, especially with their powerful video for their latest single, "Be My Girl". Talk about feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders! The video, which was directed by James Sharpe depicts a nude Earth/Mother Nature examining herself as she slowly transforms, sprouting trees and then buildings, right before our eyes. As she continues to evolve you can see it start to take a toll on her. As Sharpe explains, "Using the human body as a canvas I wanted to create a beautiful and haunting visual narrative portraying a conflict between nature, architecture and the body, ultimately representing love and acceptance, whatever the imperfections."

Enjoy "Be My Girl" below:
