Check out The Dirty Nil’s new video for “Damage Control”, off their latest album Fuck Art. The mind-expanding animated video was created by Greg Doble.
In the video, the members of The Dirty Nil visit a mythical wizard who shows them their futures; full of brutality, gold records, and a plethora of easter eggs.
Director/animator Greg Doble says of the video:
“Damage Control is a song that touches upon the both the hard moments in life, as well as our individual perception of those moments. We all want to run “damage control” when things aren’t going our way, but the reality of the situation is different in the minds of each person involved. I was quite drawn to the line “beware the things you wanna feel, ‘cause that don’t mean they’re real”. To me, this line speaks to our ability as people to gravitate towards feelings, or our own personal bias, but in the process losing touch with a shared, concrete reality.
For the music video, I wanted to break those two pieces of the song along very literal lines: There is the peril that each band member experiences, but on the other hand, we keep being pulled back out of a dream state and left wondering if any of this is real. The personal bias is made literal by the fact that the wizard in the story is toying with The NILs perception of reality and the possible future.”
