Holograms are often compared to fellow Scandinavian post-punks Iceage, but the Swedish foursome's newest video resembles the work of another bleak Swede: Legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. Directed by Emmanuella Zachariou, the just-released clip for "Meditations" follows a sepia-toned struggle between light and darkness. Mysterious figures wearing black shrouds wander through a cemetery and across rocky cliffs until they meet mysterious figures wearing white shrouds. "It's a Yin Yang story," Zachariou told Interview, "but the darkness takes over." Watch the Seventh Seal-meets-Siouxsie Sioux mashup above.

And stream all of Holograms' recently released second album, Forever, through Noisey.
