Watch Those Darlins' Sinister, Sexy 'In the Wilderness' Video

Fine art and filth blend in latest 'Blur the Line' clip

A few months back, Those Darlins saluted the female form with their "Optimist" music video, directed by Veta&Theo of Ovvio Arte. Now, the Nashville garage-rock crew have reteamed with the directorial duo for another NSFW-ish clip, a short set to lusty Blur the Line track "In the Wilderness." The black-and-white video plays like a fever dream fueled by sexual fantasies and fine art. There's a visual shout-out to Man Ray's famous "Le Violon d'Ingres" photograph, a keyhole view of a steamy swingers' party, and when singer-guitarist Nikki Kvarnes snarls, "Show your teeth / Let 'em beg," the camera catches her bandmate Jessi Zazu spitting out her pearly whites.

Watch the video for "In the Wilderness" above, and then check out Those Darlins' recent performance at SPIN's Soundwave Tent, filmed at this year's Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.
