KNTRLR's 'XXX' video is a five-minute sci-fi epic -- exclusive

Posted on

There are bands that take care of their obligations to make music videos with clever ways of stretching a tiny budget, and then there are bands like electronics-heavy rockers KNTRLR who for their new single “XXX” have gone all out and produced an entire sci-fi short complete with action sequences and a generous serving of special effects. The video’s smoggy postapocalyptic atmosphere makes an interesting juxtaposition with the song’s optimistic lyrics, and the prevalence of gas masks could perhaps be an ironic nod to the fact that their CMJ showcase last fall was canceled after a New York doctor infected with the Ebola virus visited the venue.

KNTRLR’s The Great Filter is out Feb. 24 on Brooklyn’s Goodnight Records.
