Basketball Dunking and Shamans In Liars' "WIXIW"

In the black-and-white video for Liars' languid title track off their new album, WIXIW, we watch as a long-haired basketball enthusiast tries again and again, without success, to dunk the ball. His perseverance is impressive -- all the more so when it becomes clear that he's not alone and being watched by a small crowd of onlookers, a writhing shirtless dude and a mysterious shaman type. We won't spoil the ending but finally, the guy gets his Air Bud moment.

WIXIW is out now via Mute.
