Watch This Now: Children Collide – “Jellylegs”

“I guess I’ll meet you in the afterlife…”

I like Children Collide for a variety of reasons, but in particular I’ve always been a fact of the fact they manage to strike a perfect balance between outright weirdness and rock radio accessiblility. They’ve continued this with their latest video, Jellylegs, which will be found on their upcoming second album, Theory of Everything. It’s a perfect mismatch of cool and crazy as they put together one of the more bizarre videos Australia may see all year.

The audio is slick, groovy alt-rock with a thrashy chorus and a nice little bit of overdrive. The video, contrastingly, is a bit twisted. Women in bikinis with televisions play instruments while Jonny, the fearless leader of CC, is checked up by a doctor. Watch the weirdness ensue as he sings the songs with a stick-camera through his nose and down his throat. There is most probably a medical term for it, but search me exactly what the hell it is. It’s a little confronting, watching his salivating throat as he sings the song, but you’ll be damned if it’s not incredibly inventive and left-of-centre. In conclusion, I think Children Collide is a pretty cool guy. Eh leaves me with jellylegs and doesn’t afraid of anything.
