UK artist Rat Boy takes us through the streets of Los Angeles where he captures the street-punk culture in his self-directed video “Chip On My Shoulder.” Filmed with lo-fi and chintzy aesthetics, the video has a homemade rawness to it that captures a youthful spontaneity you wouldn’t find in highly produced content. It’s almost like watching a friend’s video:

“Chip On My Shoulder” is from Rat Boy’s upcoming album Internationally Unknown, which will be out on January 25th. Rat Boy will also start touring next month, so go see him:
