In their new video for “Sad Song,” Boston/Miami absurdists PARI∀H beat the shit out of multiple birthday cakes. This brutal torture involves waterboarding with Coca-Cola, stuffing the defenseless sweets into Durex condoms (the Great Value of condom brands), and a sprinkle-to-cake ratio that may make young parents form a Facebook group in protest of tooth decay. Both the video and the song are an assault on the senses. The latter combines the sound of photon laser rifles, malfunctioning synths, and overly-distorted guitars to create the perfect noise-pop song.
PARI∀H’s odd aggression will undoubtedly transfer onto the grimy concrete floor of Uncle Lou’s when they invade this Tuesday. Them–along with the equally pissed-off St Pete. trio Piss Ghost–will join ORL natives Harsh Radish and Auto Chlor for what’s certain to be a messy night of ear-damaging jamz. Bring your own cake and let loose.
