Trent Reznor and Mariqueen Maandig get smokey, pouty
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"
