See 'Coquet Coquette' here

Hurrah for of Montreal! Our favourite American baroque-pop troupe have unveiled the video for their new single 'Coquet Coquette', which you can see here at The Quietus.

Speaking about the video - which features cannibals, barbarians and witch doctors on a deserted beach - singer Kevin Barnes said: "Inspired retroactively by M.Houellebecq, and certain unauthorized visions of the daughter of Cloud, this short film is, in part, an attempt to animate the profoundly sagacious quote of WvB [Wernher von Braun] 'Nature does not know extinction; all it knows is transformation', and the shared consciousness dream we had concerning the inherent savagery of choosing sides."

You can see the video by clicking below.

The track is taken from the band's new album False Priest, which will be released on September 13 and features the likes of Janelle Monáe and Solange Knowles. It will also be released on limited edition cassette.
