Liars Send an S.O.S.

Liars didn’t need to make an awesome stranded-at-sea video for their awesome new single “Scissor” to get us excited for their (probably) awesome new album Sisterworld (out March 9!). But they did it anyways: In the pretty, Shirley Jackson–referencing clip, front man Andrew Young wakes up in a life raft with a serious rock-infestation problem, and it only gets creepier from there. It works great as a companion piece to the jarring loud-quiet-loud dynamics of “Scissor,” too, making lyrics like “I dragged her body to the parking lot” feel that much more ominous. Best of all, there’s a funny ending!
