Sediment Club Tackle the Absurdity Of Police Violence In New Video for

A mysterious first-person presence dons a police badge, hat, and handgun amid a mess of glowsticks before New York rhythm and noise band The Sediment Club’s nauseating, cacophonous gyre stirs to life and Lazar Bozic’s tortured yowl takes over. In the video for "Apprehension Complex," the newborn gunperson/police officer/narrator searches for clues-- a bloody wall, a baby, an arrogant shadow. As the camera’s gaze tracks across the scene, so does the weapon in hand. At one level, this storyline is absurd and surreal, but then again, so is nationwide police violence. As the narrator aims its pistol toward the unknown, it’s hard not to ask when the hammer will eventually fall. The scene changes and the viewer is spared the outcome by the doubled vision of a masked figure in a plume of smoke. For now, the possibility of further violence has passed.

"Apprehension Complex" comes from Psychosymplastic, out now in the U.S. on Wharf Cat Records and Chu Chu Records in Germany.
