Richard Kern Directed the New Music Video for Is Tropical

When it comes to visually stimulating mind fuckery, UK trio Is Tropical reigns supreme. With only two albums released on French record and fashion label Kitsuné under their belts, they’ve already succeeded in releasing a strong handful of ridiculously epic music videos. These are the kind of three second clips that make you think, “what the hell kind of band is this?” and then immediately Google everything else they’ve ever done and obsessively add what you find to your favorite late-night, YouTube K-Hole video list.

For their latest video, they asked our favorite photog/director Richard Kern to shoot them for their new single, “Lover’s Cave”. While no one gets shot or blows a load to Hentai in this video it still includes an epic house party we’d really want to go to. Below is just a taste of some of our favorite bits:

The attractive butt walking into what we assume is the “Lover’s Cave”

We open with Is Tropical (3 guys who look like their high school guidance counselor kicked them out of class and forced them to start a band) performing at a house party where a bunch of hot girls are dancing around in their underwear/taking showers with the door open.

Next, we get some girls dancing and holding hands, as is customary at parties.

Some half-naked women hang out behind the drummer, though he looks like he could give two shits about them.

This girl appears to have either (a) fallen asleep on the floor and just woke up. (b) Is so high on molly she fell over. The third option is she is ecstasy due to the act of cunnilingus that is happening off screen. Perhaps the answer is somewhere in-between... pun intended.

Shot of some girls blowin’ shotties.

A girl who tastefully picks her wedgie, and the guitarist who appears to get a boner from it. How do I know he has a boner? Look at that smile!

A ratchet female has a pint poured all over her face, presumably as a punisment for her unrepentantly ratchety ways.

A guy and girl make out.

A girl makes out with another girl and tries to cop a feel at the same time.

Basically, a lot of people make out in this video.

The model bitch who’s so fucking bored of everything being anti-social, smoking a cig in the corner.

The hickies...

The guy who crowdsurfs.

The part when the guitarist and bass player get so wasted they make out.

All the butts.

All the boobs too.
