Metro Area’s Morgan Geist commissioned Junior Boys’ Jeremy Greenspan to do vocals for the track “Ruthless City” (off Geist’s Double Night Time release), and the result is a warm, nu-disco number that’s contrasted sharply by lyrics about fights and blood. The video is a visual reinterpretation of the latter two items, wherein a couple guys assault another man who’s minding his own business, carrying the groceries home. Suffice to say, some very bad things happen over the course of the song’s four minutes. It would all be considerably more disturbing if not for the upbeat feel of the music. One assumes Geist was aiming for this contradiction.
