A group of people are seen hitting the shore, fighting each other and eating those who can't survive the battle.
Of Montreal's music video for their single "Coquet Coquette" has made its way out for fans viewing pleasure. Directed by Jason Miller, the clip features a bunch of people who get cannibal and violent as they are fighting each other in a barbarian battle.
Explaining about the bloody video, Kevin Barnes said as quoted by Idolator, "[It was] inspired retroactively by M.Houellebecq, and certain unauthorized visions of the daughter of Cloud." He added, "This short film is, in part, an attempt to animate the profoundly sagacious quote of WvB."
The lead singer of the band further said, "Nature does not know extinction; all it knows is transformation. .. and the shared consciousness dream we had concerning the inherent savagery of choosing sides."
"Coquet Coquette" is lifted from Of Montreal's new studio project "False Priest" which is expected to arrive in United States on September 14.
