A word to the wise: cottaging with How to destroy angels_ is a bit more depressing than most seaside excursions. The “Ice age” clip sees the band running through their plaintive, foreboding tune while holed up in a rundown cabin. The band members glitch and flitter as Mariqueen Maandig keeps a tortured watch on the ocean, but to no avail, as a VHS permafrost soon engulfs their memories and reality itself. Just your average How to destroy angels_ rehearsal, then. Super-good director John Hillcoat is behind the camera.
An omen_ is out now via Columbia.
