'Mud' flows atop a synth-heavy bass with electronic Moog urges tip-toeing around Peaches' signature vocals. The video, directed by Vice Cooler, was filmed in one slowed-down 80-second take and shows the singer being splashed about by dirty water, mud and other unidentifiable objects.
"It was clear that we could only do the take once," Peaches tells Spinner. "I knew that so much would literally be flying at me so I had the plan to be extremely conscious of my facial expression. I was going to be stoic. I tried not to react to all the different textures and temperatures coming at me.
"Vice bought fertilizer to use as mud. I knew it was fertilizer but when they started dumping it on me, it smelt like, well, s---, because that is of course what it was. I really tried not to react, but the smell was so strong. You can see me react to the smell although I tried so hard not to. It was quiet a surreal moment. What we do for art!"
If you happen to be in Germany, you can catch Peaches, starting May 4, performing four "re-run shows" of her acclaimed opera 'Peaches Does Herself' at Berlin's prestigious Hebbel Theater. 'I Feel Cream' is available now via XL.
