According to Spin, the follow-up album to Jenny Death is accompanied by a video of the late actress Karen Black. The footage depicts Black in her home in 2013, reading dialogue penned by Zach Hill. In the video’s description, Death Grips elaborates:
Iconic 70’s film star Karen Black passed away in August 2013. In February of that year, Karyn Rachtman introduced Ms. Black to Zach Hill. The two immediately hit it off. Zach had written a part for Karen for a film he was developing and gave her the pages for her scenes. Though she didn’t know how the scenes would fit into the final film, she readily agreed to read her character’s dialog on camera for Zach.
Death Grips is one of the most unique (and unpredictable) fusions of the music industry. As the music video for “I Break Mirrors With My Face In The United States” unveiled earlier this year proves, their music is a rush of adrenaline and power, a relentless launch of energy and rage. The experimental hip hop and punk rock trio’s Bottomless Pit is anticipated to be another eclectic dimension of exerpimentation that breaks expectations.
