Speedy Ortiz released their Real Hair EP earlier this year, and it included “American Horror,” one of the band’s very best songs to date. Now they’ve given that song a charming video, directed by Peter Binswanger, which riffs on some horror-movie and video-game references, but with a pretty silly and good-natured attitude. It’s less American Horror Story and more in the spirit of how most people actually act while watching American Horror Story. With all the things that pop up in this video, I feel like you could sit down with this band and have a really fun conversation about Suspiria, Mortal Kombat, and Day Of The Tentacle.
