Attack of the Pandas: LCD Soundsystem’s “Drunk Girls”
James Murphy and co. get hazed in the band’s video for LCD Soundsystem‘s shot at a tipsy party anthem, “Drunk Girls.” Is the Spike-Jonze directed video meant to be a statement about how LCD Soundsystem feels hazed by the music world? Is James Murphy telling us it sucks to be an indie darling? Are the rowdy, creepy panda-people evil, evil critics? Is the band commenting on how it’s shitty to be a drunk girl? Or, is this just a brilliantly simple way to create a) chaos and b) a viral sensation? Your call.
