tUnE-yArDs unveil “Bizness” video, start Japan benefit facepaint contest

tUnE-yArDs are hot on the heels of recording w h o k i l l , coming out April 19th on 4AD, and the band has released a video for single “Bizness.”  In the video, school children playfully run amok, a collage of face-painted adults rotate, reconfigure, and recombine as organic, geometric shapes, and Merrill Garbus fleshes out an envisioning of her primal wail.

In related news, the band have started a contest encouraging fans to “submit photos of themselves – or any other objects they see fit – adorned in coloured face paint. To enter, fans should upload photos via a dedicated Flickr account here. For every photo submitted, Merrill will dedicate $1 to the Japan relief effort. The photo judged to be the most creative will win a boombox decorated by tUnE-yArDs in the colours of the w h o k i l l album artwork.”  Get an idea of what they’re looking for here.
