Watch 100 gecs’ glitchy new video for ‘Dumbest Girl Alive’

100 gecs

100 gecs have celebrated the release of their new album by sharing a video for ‘Dumbest Girl Alive’ – check it out below.

The hyperpop duo – Laura Les and Dylan Brady – released their long-awaited second album ‘10,000 gecs’ yesterday (March 17).

Their ‘Dumbest Girl Alive’ video sees the pair in a warehouse, with Brady sitting unmoved on some stairs with an acoustic guitar, while a superimposed, glitchy version of Les dances away while performing the song.

Check it out below.

Giving ‘10,000 gecs’ a five-star review, NME wrote: “Though it’s sorely missing some choice cuts from 100 gecs’ current live set (namely ‘Fallen 4 Ü’ and ‘What’s That Smell?’), ‘10,000 gecs’ is insanely fun and impressively ambitious.

“It’s also short but sweet, throwing its turbulent flurry of punches and then dipping out before listeners have a chance to really think about what’s going on. And therein lies the key to making the most of ‘10,000 gecs’: don’t think too hard about it, just take a deep breath and ride the wave.”

Next month, the band will begin a huge North American headline tour behind ‘10,000 gecs’. Buy tickets here and see the full list of tour dates below.
