An intense, unsettling clip, the new black-and-white video perfectly encapsulates the track’s fearsome, claustrophobic nature.
Speaking of the new video, the band say: “We wanted a video that represented the song visually and encapsulated the ambiguity of the lyrics. We felt that in/out perfectly captured the tense feeling of the track and created one of our favourite videos to date.”
Directing duo in/out add: “The Horrors’ brief talked of madness and redemption; disguises and hidden worlds; and a feeling of being swept away.
“Thermal imagery helped us represent the body at an unsettling crossroads between the familiar and the unknown. Penetrating beneath the skin, it serves as a reminder of the fragility below.”
The Horrors are set to play a host of summer festivals, beginning at this weekend’s Citadel in London’s Gunnersbury Park.
