Courtney Barnett is, right now, one of Australia’s biggest exports. She’s adorning all sorts of big-shot lineups like Coachella, and she hasn’t even released a fucking album yet.
But why would you go to all the effort of writing, producing, and creating an album when you’ve got gung-ho beauties like ‘Annonymous Club’ in the bank? This song is so subtly beautiful and nuanced, it’s more gorgeous than watching a bluebird take its first breath.
The video offers a similar aesthetic. It’s a black-and-white animation, featuring a bunch of lonely, teary creatures. It’s haunting and stunning, incredibly simple but damningly effective. Good on ya Barnesy.
