See the Art Rock Oddity That is LEOPARDO “Selfish Spoiled Child”

LEOPARDO

Have you ever thought that your life wasn’t worth sharing on social media? Despite the richness of waking up alive, hungry, sore, swollen, groggy, and crusty every morning, sometimes I look in the mirror and say, how can I create something that other people will Like today? And I feel despondent when I realize that I’ve never bothered to master the cute angles and pout and squat for the camera that other people seem to be so good at. And I’m probably just going to sit at my desk in a comfortable and homely outfit. And I’ve forgotten how to do my makeup. Then I realize that it’s fucking stupid to let any of those things hold me back from enjoying the fuck out of my simple, invisible day.

It’s the cameras and masks swarming on the new LEOPARDO video for “Selfish Spoiled Child” that’s reminding me just how vapid it is to need that validation from anyone. Their psychedelic art-rock sound perfectly fits the mess social media has made of our self-worth and self-perception. Their record Malcantone comes out on June 11th and you can pre-order it now via Feel it Records, Le Pop Club Records, and SDZ Records. Today we’re extra stoked to be sharing their video for “Selfish Spoiled Child” below — and remember, the only like that counts in your life is your own.
