Song Facts

Windowlicker is a single released by British IDM artist Richard D. James under the alias, Aphex Twin. The song is Aphex’s highest-charting release, reaching #16 on the UK charts, as well as being featured in a self-titled music video.
The music video was directed by Chris Cunningham, who also directed the video for Come to Daddy.

The music video follows two black men who are struggling to get a girlfriend. As they attempt to hitch two girls on the street, they get interrupted by a limousine carrying strippers who, disturbingly, all have Aphex Twin’s face. From then on, the video follows the shenanigans between the stripper and the two men.

Chris Cunningham discussed the inspiration behind the music video in a 2018 article in Medium.

That’s not the primary reason but it had a big bearing on it. When Richard did this track that sounded summery and sunny, I thought, ‘Fuck. We should do it in LA in that style’.
“Windowlicker” was me trying to make a more commercial video for Aphex. The last half of the video sounded really pornographic. It made me think about girls’s arses. So I thought okay, that’s definitely how the video’s got to end and the first half of the video sounded like driving round in the sun.

The music video itself was released on VHS and on CD, with the CD being accompanied with a demo of the title song.

“Windowlicker” features an easter egg during the final seconds of the song, which can be found by playing the song through a spectrogram), which will display a drawing of a whirlpool.
