This Will Destroy You have unveiled their brand new video for ‘Black Dunes’.

The single was released last month, but the band have just revealed the video, directed by Malcolm Elijah.

The director had gave this insight to the video itself: ‘It centres around the fracturing of a young woman’s mind, her descent into self absorbed delirium. This transformation is set within a home that is equally broken- it lays abandoned and left at the hands of miscreants and transients. The context can be framed as a dream within a dream of a young woman under a possessive trance. I imagine the central female figure in several senses. In the beginning we pan into her mind as she wanders from field to house, encountering various scenarios of neglect and destruction. The video crescendos into the girl’s inner eye where it reveals a collection of twisted and obscure memories. In the end, the image of her shrinks into darkness.

‘This was shot over a few gray winter days in Texas. The quality of light is almost a character in and of itself, filtering through the hollow windows and across broken glass or smashed walls.The effects going into the video are completely unique in that they incorporate a hyprid of digital editing techniques and analog video synthesis processes most heavily featured during the apex of the song. My goal ultimately was to abstract the format of which it was made; I kept imagining finding a fossilized alien video format and the effects you might see when you watched it.’

The band have also announced a short string of UK dates, making stops at the following cities in April.

APRIL
02 Firebug, Leicester
03 Ivory Blacks, Glasgow
04 Moho Live, Manchester
05 Islington Academy, London
