Xiu Xiu are releasing a new album, Girl with Basket of Fruit, on February 8 via Polyvinyl. Previously they shared a strange video for its first single, “Scisssssssors.” Now they have shared another song from the album, “Pumpkin Attack on Mommy and Daddy,” also via a weird video. Watch it below.

The album is the follow-up to 2017’s FORGET. The “Pumpkin Attack on Mommy and Daddy” video was directed by the band’s Angela Seo, alongside Anna Lian Tes. It features Seo and the band’s founder Jamie Stewart, as well as performance artists Ron Athey and Elliot Reed. Seo wrote the song, with lyrical contributions from Stewart and Reed. A press release says the song was inspired by “Toiletpaper magazine, works by Boyd McDonald, Korean mythological drawings, and alcohol.”
