Fischerspooner’s “Butterscotch Goddam” Video Is Literally A Stripped-Down Affair

The synth-loving duo continue their series of homoerotic videos for "Sir," their new album out now.

Fischerspooner has released a new music video for “Butterscotch Goddam,” off their new studio album, Sir, out today.

The video is a pared down effort, but like the rest of the clips for Sir, still highly homoerotic.

“The song is about a tumultuous love affair,” director Carlo Van de Roer tells NME. “We shot the video entirely in-camera, using optical devices and new film-making tools to play with the push and pull of a dichotomous relationship, and the accumulating distortion of reality that comes with that.”

Lead singer Casey Spooner told NewNowNext Sir is all about sharing queer narratives.

“I felt like it was important to share those stories in a way that wasn’t sensationalizing or diminishing or fetishizing, and really just an honest portrait of my experiences as an older gay man.” Thanks to the advent of things like PrEP and hookup apps, he adds, “there’s this new kind of wild sexual freedom.”

Sir is out now on Ultra Music.
