Don't watch this one alone. The deeply atmospheric video for This Will Destroy You's creeping, explosive "Black Dunes," from the instrumental post-rock quartet's Tunnel Blanket, available now, is disturbing as all get out. The clip shows a young woman wandering through a forlorn empty house, ghostly apparitions, and eerie visual abstractions that seriously give us the creeps.

"This video was conceived while driving through mist in rural Sweden," explains Malcolm Elijah, who directed the disturbing eight-and-a-half-minute spot. "It centers around the fracturing of a young woman's mind and her descent into self-induced, self-absorbed delirium." Well, as you'll see, they pretty much nailed that vibe.

The band kicks off a 17-date tour January 28 in Denton, Texas.
