Dance With Glee To Modern Ennui Thanks To This Delightful Song

Call it an ode to riding in a car with one stranger to meet another stranger. On the one hand, “Uber Tinder” makes you marvel at the wholesale melding of personal space with branded tech, and on the other hand, it’s just some good, chaotic fun… with multicolored unitards.

FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF

First it was Eat Sleep Dance Repeat.

Now it’s Uber Tinder Dinner Bed.

That’s what X.X.T. captures in their hypnotically catchy new song and music video “Uber Tinder.” The Los Angeles-based group, described as “a sonic and visual sensory explosion inspired by surrealist art, technicolor dreamscapes, and one-of-a-kind experiential performances” does the kind of lo-fi, DIY-feeling music videos that deliberately eschew the pretension of lavish and overly complicated videos that get in the way of why we’re even showing up to this thing: the music.

From mighty bangers to simpler musings, X.X.T.’s music is one part performance art and two parts actually, genuinely enjoyable performance art; and when accompanied by awkward dance moves that let us all just relax a little bit we get to not only think but, you know, have fun.

X.X.T. also do live shows featuring comedians, musicians, contortionists, dancers, and puppeteers. If you want to check out one of their shows — DO IT. You won’t be disappointed.
