Join Palberta at the “BEACH”

Post Author: Quinn Moreland

“I can’t quite feel my senses / Can’t quite feel the sensations!” So goes “BEACH,” the opening track off Palberta’s sophomore LP Shitheads in the Ditch. The song suggests a disconnect between desires of the body and desires of the mind: “This is not / Anything I wish to do / I feel subject to / Doing you!” In a new video directed by Izzy Kross, Ani Ivry-Block, Lily Konigsberg, and Nina Ryser are set against footage of idyllic beachgoers. Squiggly animated lines frame each band member as they lick honey out of their armpits, scratch vague orifices, and smack body parts together. When the song breaks into chaos, all of this accelerates into anonymous flashes of bumping butts and squishy skin flaps.

Speaking of beaches, Palberta recently released their Hot on the Beach tape through Organechs.
