The clip follows a day in the life of a wood mouse, and is wonderfully narrated by none other than the original ‘tops off’ pioneer, Iggy Pop.
Talking of the new clip in a press release, the band say: “We love working with great directors, giving them the creative freedom to interpret our tracks as they wish. It leads to great collaborations, like this new video for In Cold Blood from Casper Balslev. As you are about to find out, a day in the life of a wood mouse can be unexpectedly dangerous… We hope you enjoy it.”
‘Relaxer’ comes out on 9th June, and the band are set to play a special show at London’s O2 Arena to celebrate the venue’s 10th birthday. They also play this year’s Glastonbury.
