How to Destroy Angels’ well anticipated second EP, An Omen, is due out November 13, but so far we’ve only heard one song — “Keep it Together” — done a handful of different ways. There was the original, the Dave Sitek remix, and now comes a professionally shot video of the four-piece doing the song in the studio. Seeing the plaintive faces of Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and Nine Inch Nails collaborators Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan adds a more human element to their apocalyptic trip-hop update. How a band’s sound can be both smokey and cold eludes us, but we’re guessing the fifth Angel is dry ice.

How to Destroy Angels, An Omen EP track list:
1. “Keep it together”
2. “Ice age”
3. “On the wing”
4. “The sleep of reason produces monsters”
5. “The loop closes”
6. “Speaking in tongues”
