The video for “Ice Cream”: a sexy and carefree Battles, the Latin warmth and invitation to naughty games Matías Aguayo gives to everything he touches, and the always vivid imagination of the increasingly internationally operating producer Canada. Very much in tune with the track’s summery mood, the video shows a fanciful merry-go-round of images of boys and girls, ice cream and pizzas, baths and beaches, Persian cats and, er, karate experts? While some are exercising their discipline (a metaphor for early Battles’ instrumental math-rock precision?), others indulge themselves and give their body what it asks them. Of course, summer is coming and Battles give it to us like melting ice cream. The Americans will be playing at San Miguel Primavera Sound 2011 on Friday 27th May.
