Growing up can be a tough thing to do, so why do it?

tUnE-yArDs (typng that never gets old) -- the brainchild of frontwoman/multi-instrumentalist Merrill Garbus -- have released the video for "My Country," the latest single from the 2011 release "w h o k i l l " (4AD Records).

The video features a group of fierce-looking, warpaint-wearing tots who Garbus leads in a frenzied cacophony of dance, music-making and lip-synching. She's obviously having a blast re-living that seemingly carefree chapter of existence (besides her height, she fits right in to the mob). She also lends them a heart before they go off into the big, bright world. The visuals are fitting for the songs' child-like, sing-songy vocals, but there's always something sonically sinister about most tUnE-yArDs songs. Maybe it's the saxophone.
