Kim Gordon has dropped an anti-music video for “Air BnB,” a cut off her upcoming solo debut album No Home Record.
On the track, Gordon skewers the company it’s named for, singing over wailing guitars: “Air Bnb, Air Bnb / Could set me free / Rustic, romantic / Malibu or getaway.” But the accompanying ‘video’ is an even harsher indictment of not only the hospitality gig economy, but also contemporary music video production.
“The video was going to be shot in an Air BnB. There wasn’t any money to do it. Think faux mid-century modern, with a great view of the city and lots of glass,” the video’s stark, black-and-white opening sequence reads.
The video continues to describe its hypothetical treatment: Gordon crawling along the floor over a shag carpet as she rubs her guitar on various furniture, while wearing a red lace Rodarte top and leather cape. The pitch then concludes with the ex-Sonic Youth guitarist moving outside to a tent in the backyard with her guitar while the sun sets.
Gordon previously dropped a video for “Sketch Artist,” another track from her upcoming album No Home Record, due out October 11.
