Xiu Xiu tap Liars’ Angus Andrew for “Rumpus Room”

From their ‘OH NO’ album of duets.

Xiu Xiu have shared another cut from the forthcoming OH NO duets album in “Rumpus Room,” featuring Liars’ Angus Andrew.

The track arrived with a surreal DIY visual, directed by the group’s very own Angela Seo, which serves as a sequel to the previously released “Bottle of Rum.” The clip—which also stars bandmate Jamie Stewart—includes a notable scene of Seo indulging in a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos.

“One of the first things I shoplifted as a kid was a bag of FHC,” Seo explained in a statement. “I once bet my cousin I could finish an entire Party Size bag in one sitting; I won the bet but lost my sense of taste for a couple days.”


She added: “Sometimes in my old teenage journals, I find flamin’ red dusted fingerprint smudges among melodramatic poems and fake runaway notes. All that intersected perfectly with the ‘Rumpus Room’ song, and part two story of the video trilogy.”

OH NO is the group’s 12th studio album and is the follow-up to 2019’s Girl with Basket of Fruit. Apart from “Rumpus Room” and “Bottle of Rum,” the 15-track duet album is set to feature contributions by Sharon Van Etten, Chelsea Wolfe, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, Owen Pallett, Alice Bag and more.

OH NO will arrive on March 26. While you wait, watch the video for “Rumpus Room” below:
