Back in May, Merrill Garbus released her third album as tUnE-yArDs in the form of Nikki Nack. Now, she’s returned with a colorful and kind of bonkers video for album cut “Real Thing”.

Directed by Tom Jobbins, the video combines stop motion animation and live action shots for a visual that features creepy, dancing mannequins and lots of colors. Garbus’ songs are known for being playful, vibrant, and really weird, so it’s fitting that her music videos match those themes. Watch it below.

Garbus has also expanded her current tour. New additions to the docket include a four-night residency at the Music Hall of Williamsburg plus a new leg of West Coast dates in December. See the full schedule below.
