Parquet Courts unveil video for 'Pretty Machines'

If we had been nostalgic enough to come up with some kind of ‘Band of the Year’ award for 2014, then Parquet Courts probably would have been front runners for the title.

They were behind not one, but two of our favourite albums of the year thanks to Sunbathing Animal and Content Nausea under the pseudonym Parkay Quarts – released via Rough Trade.

Despite only being spearheaded by half of the band’s full lineup in the shape of Austin Brown and Andrew Savage, Content Nausea continues to be the gift that keeps on giving.

‘Pretty Machines’ is one of the immediate standouts from the record, meaning its surprising that this has been chosen as the next release, with a video that seems to achieve the tricky goal of appearing sleek, stylish and DIY in one fell swoop.

Stream the video for ‘Pretty Machines’ below.
