Parkay Quarts premiere video for track ‘Pretty Machines’ – watch

Single taken off band's latest album 'Content Nausea'

Parkay Quarts (aka Parquet Courts) have unveiled a new video for their song ‘Pretty Machines’, which is taken off their latest album ‘Content Nausea’.

The video, which you can watch below, features guitarist and co-vocalist Austin Brown repeating the same daily routine over and over. Brown co-directed the video, which uses overlapping frames to tell its story, with East Link’s Johann Rashid.


Parkay Quarts previously labelled ‘Content Nausea’ “not an LP” and “not an EP”, but somewhere in the middle of the two formats. The record is 12 tracks in length and was released via Rough Trade in December. You can stream it in its entirety below.

The ‘Parkay Quarts’ moniker was previously used for the band’s 2013 EP ‘Tally All the Things That You Broke’, while Parquet Courts’ last release was ‘Sunbathing Animal’ in June. Parquet Courts also toured the UK in November with PC Worship, under another moniker PCPC, after the two bands revealed their joint track ‘Fell Into The Wrong Crowd’.
