A dirty protest from Dirty Projectors

The poo emoji finally gets the recognition it deserves in the new video from those premium purveyors of glitch-pop, Dirty Projectors.

Keep Your Name is a haunting ballad that appears to be a diss of a former bandmate: "What I want from art is truth / What you want is fame," sings David Longstreth. "I guess it's shit that Gene Simmons said / Our band is a brand and it looks that our vision is dissonance."

The video is stark and surreal, with Longstreth playing piano, smashing up guitars and showing off his ambidexterity - doodling complex pictures (and cartoon faeces) with both hands simultaneously.

It's really quite beautiful.
