By now we’re well aware of Odd Future’s relentless ability to make us cringe with each released track. This reaction is usually brought about by their lyrics, but now it’s due more to the imagery in their newest video for NY (Ned Flander), a song from the upcoming second volume mix tape, ‘OF Tapes Vol. 2′, out March 20. It doesn’t quite take us down a dark and angry alley, but it is slightly unsettling. The song’s ominous tone—similar to the rest of Odd Future and Tyler, The Creator‘s sound—certainly adds to this feeling.
Directed by Tyler, The Creator’s alter ego Wolf Haley, the video takes us to a broken down home. OF rappers Tyler and Hodgy Beats live here, playing the role of impoverished baby and balding baby daddy, respectively. They each have a verse in the quick, two-minute track, held together by a somewhat demonic child-like background melody.
