Giraffes? Giraffes! // "Hug of Death" Music Video

A psychedelic new video from the guitar and drums duo Giraffes? Giraffes! premiered on Fecking Bahamas today! "Hug of Death" was the first single from the band's masterpiece of a record, Memory Lame, and the video features a spooky image of death taking souls by hugging every person he sees. It was filmed and edited by the talented Lindsey Topham, putting a story behind a track with no lyrics but tons of energy.
