Disperser – “Burn Sores” Music Video / Short Film

Chicago, IL math punk duo DISPERSER are no strangers to all things weird, loud, and disorienting. Their sound is an abrasive mix of slimy riffs coupled with grindcore-like intensity beneath screamed, absurdist lyrics – all in ultra short bursts of songs that usually clock in under 2 minutes each. In essence, they are an embodiment of the extreme. So it’s no surprise that their music videos have followed suit, serving as a distorted looking glass into their strange world and even stranger minds.

Their newest music video, for the track “Burn Sores” off their debut full length A Bastion of Et Cetera, is not just a music video – it’s also a bizarre short film that tells the story of two odd fellows (played by the band members) as they pick up some unique cargo from a similarly-dressed, similarly-odd colleague of theirs. Although the story lacks any kind of dialogue, and their mission is not quite clear, the narrative carries the viewer along for a ride that increases in intensity until the very last moments of crazed delirium. But we won’t give it away…

Shot in a single day with no budget, no crew, and no gear aside from a gimbal and old DSLR, what “Burn Sores” lacks in production value it makes up for in its wild execution.
