Fresh off the back of a national Australian tour with Regurgitator and a week out from the release of their self-titled sophomore album, Ngunnawal Ngambri/Canberra-based all-female quartet Glitoris have readied the music video for their latest single Sock Puppet (that made our best tunes of the week list!), premiering on Pilerats today a day ahead of release.

Featuring a huge string section, Sock Puppet takes cues from symphonic rock-opera styles, so it seems only right that the video features a cheeky homage to Bohemian Rhapsody. A stylised live performance of Sock Puppet is interspersed with footage of online troll keyboard warriors hiding in their dark rooms behind screens, echoing the message of the lyrics.

Speaking on the meaning behind Sock Puppet, Glitoris explain "Sock Puppet’ is a modern-day commentary on the destabilising of Western democracy and targeting of minority groups with propaganda, through mass-coordinated networks of online trolls, sock puppet accounts and data misuse", with those themes coming to life in film form.

With the music video for Sock Puppet out tomorrow and their new album out July 14, give Glitoris' new clip a watch today:
