Enjoy Preoccupations’ Seizure-Inducing Video for “Degraded” US tour starts this month

I don’t know about you, but I prefer my menacing post-punk adorned in post-human primordial ruin teeming with hypnogogic, sentient sculptures. What a way to start the day. Preoccupations and Dir. Valentina Tapia deliver a seizure-inducing video accompaniment to their searing-synth triumph “Degraded”. The untamed terror at the core of what is really Preoccupations’ closest attempt at a traditional pop effort is balanced by the vibrant, breathing abstractions of Tapia’s creation.

Just a month out from Preoccupations’ self-titled soul-piercing album release, the band is destroying stages across the US and EU starting this month, including dates with Explosions In The Sky and a sweet spot at LA’s FYF Fest.
