Parquet Courts Share New Video, Play Dates Under Multiple Pseudonyms

Today slacker rock band Parquet Courts shared a new video for “Bodies,” a track culled from their recent effort Sunbathing Animal. The track features the group’s distinct, lackadaisical vocal delivery over wavering guitar lines and squeals of feedback. Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, directors of the recently acclaimed Nick Cave documentary 20,000 Days on Earth, the video uses footage primarily from Parquet Courts’ July 11th show at Sugar Hill Club, which the pair captured.

In other Parquet Courts news, the band is teaming up with band PC Worship to form a brief supergroup of sorts. The band will be called PCPC and will play their first dates opening up for legend Thurston Moore. Then, Parquet Courts will play a few East coast dates and tour Europe under the pseudonym Parkay Quarts.
