Albert Hammond, Jr. has shared a new video from his still-fresh solo EP AHJ. The clip above gives the Strokes guitarist's warmly jangling single "St. Justice" a vivid narrative whose felt drama plays out in stark relief to Laurent Briet's black-and-white treatment. Therein, Hammond meets a love interest played by model Nina de Raadt. Together, they paint a charming portrait of domesticity — eating, bathing, and listening to music together (cutely, she doesn't seem to recognize the Strokes' catalog when Hammond offers to throw a record on the turntable). But the man's lyrics should clue us in as to the direction of the plot: "I got locked in myself and I don't know what to do / There are dreams in my eyes that now don't shine through." After a pretty steamy scene in which we see a whole lot of Hammond, the two have a bitter falling out, and the entire mood shifts. "Is this it?" one might ask. Sadly, the answer seems to be, "Yes."
