Art Brut – Arizona Bay (Single Review)

Art Brut have just unveiled the new video for their track ‘Arizona Bay’.

The video was the winning entry in a competition run by the band to create a video for one of two new tracks featured on their recent release Top Of The Pops, a career-spanning retrospective, released in commemoration of Art Brut’s 10th anniversary. Created by Lillian Low, the video features a cast of colourful paper puppets and backdrops which captures the fun and frantic punk energy of the track ‘Arizona Bay’.

Front person Eddie Argos has praised the innovation and originality of the video:

‘Lillian Low didn’t just win the competition for ‘best Art Brut video’, in my opinion she won the overall competition for best video ever made. Citizen Kane, Dark Knight Returns and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey all pale in comparison to the work of art that Lillian has created. I’m honored she spent so much time working on something for my band. Hooray for Lillian!’
