Ejecta, the duo of Neon Indian's Leanne Macomber and Ford & Lopatin's Joel Ford, put out their debut album, Dominae, last year and now one of its singles, "Eleanor Lye," has been given video treatment (by Allie Avital Tspyin of BANGS). As you may have realized by now, Leanne's character as Ejecta is almost always naked (like in press shots), and the new video is no different. See for yourself, below (unless you're at work).

Why always nude? Her press release notes:

Macomber describes Ejecta as a character, one that conceptually represents her various inner-struggles, and yet also as a way to "deflect" them. This alternate identity acts a conduit for Macomber's countless longings, and as such is always depicted completely nude.
Leanne also spoke to Polari Magazine about it:
In all the artwork, you were photographed nude to portray this character. The final results are stunning but were you apprehensive about baring all for the artwork?

Leanne: I grew up in the dark room around adults who, among other things, gave me the gift of bravery. I feel detached from myself when I'm this character, when I'm on stage. Art is a wonderful escape for the shy and awkward. Art is my armor.

Read more at Polari, at Hungarian site Recorder, and in the interview with Emmy the Great that Leanne, who is also in Fight Bite, did for Noisey.

That all said, Leanne was clothed at their live debut at CMJ 2013, and again when they played SXSW 2014. You can watch videos from both with the new NSFW video, below...

Her art is her armor, but her naked twat is the only reason anyone will pay attention to this crap

How long until she regrets this phase of her life/career and then comes out to speak of childhood molestation?

That chick has the same crazy eyes as the DIIV drummer in that shot. Whenever he plays I can see him staring straight through me.

I think it takes a lot to show your naked body in your music video I think it's wonderful I think more artists should do it it truly is beautiful I love how she's willing to be naked it would be even awesomer if she was naked on stage for her concerts. truly a beautiful woman I would love to see more naked singers in their videos and on stage

oh and I've been listening to that album all day they're a very talented group
