Watch: Viet Cong Release Video For “Bunker Buster”

Calgary buzz-band drops dark, eery video

Calgary-based quartet Viet Cong are a band on the rise. Huge buzz surrounds this group who find a way to sound familiar and fresh at the same time – pushing the post-punk genre a little further with their brand of tight, catchy, and dark tunes. Their debut self-titled album is nominated for a Polaris Prize this year.

Before heading out on their world tour, they’ve dropped a video for the fourth cut of the album. The video for “Bunker Busker” is directed by Yoonha Park and has a grainy, sci-fi vibe, taking influences from the likes of Wong Kar-Wai, Philip K. Dick, and Lars von Trier.
