Need a mind-blowing psychedelic send off as you wind down the last few minutes on the clock before the weekend officially begins? Then you need to look no further than… Iceland?
Yep, Reykjavík, Iceland is not only home to the eccentric swan dress wearing Bjork, but also the 13-piece band Orphic Oxtra whose trippy surreal music video for the instrumental “Skeletons Having Sex on a Tin Roof” is currently taking the internet by storm.
***WARNING*** May cause seizures or complete brain lockdown or both.
It’s like an all-music episode of Jack Horkheimer: Star Hustler hosted by a slightly younger and more robust Baywatch version of Mariel Hemingway.
Say what you will about Sigrún Jónsdóttir (The girl in the clip) but there’s one thing you cannot deny – she has a nice ass!
No need to contact Phaedra Parks, “Everybody knows” that’s a donkey booty!
Want to know a little more about Orphic Oxtra? Here’s their own description from the band’s Facebook page:
To stand still during an Orphic Oxtra performance is no easy feat. Breaking into feverish Balkan-inspired dancing is a clear and ever-present danger. People of all ages and backgrounds find themselves seduced into a frenzied state of dancing like they’ve never danced before.
Orphic Oxtra is comprised of 13 charismatic and highly talented musicians that write and perform an enticing recipe of Balkan and klezmer-influenced orchestral dance music with a multitude of twists.
These festive collaborators, all of whom are contributors to the song writing, are not musically confined to the Balkans as they also take turns challenging each other with a fireworks display of solos inspired by other cultures and types of music as well. The outcome is a rare marriage of the cerebral and the celebratory that captures mind, body and soul. No gazing of shoes here – not even a glance. Their objective is to move you and your feet!
Here’s the band performing live sans the acid trip:
But in case you needed another shot of Orphic Oxtra psychedelia to get you out the office door, here’s another take on the “Skeletons Having Sex on a Tin Roof” titled “Tylenol Rainbow” featuring a lot of the same elements:
