US garage rockers Black Lips released their latest album ‘Satan’s Graffiti Or God’s Art?’ back in May via Vice Records, and have now returned to it for a brand new video from it.
In the Bryan Bankovich-directed clip for ‘Crystal Night’, a couple attend a winter formal and seem to be having a great time of it – the shimmering décor certainly fits the kind of sweet, lilting nature of the track itself. But then things start to go, well, a bit wrong. How wrong? Well, people get bundled into a car in the end and that’s not such a jolly jape, is it? Black Lips themselves look pretty pleased with themselves as the house band though – applause all round!
Watch the video for ‘Crystal Night’ below.
