Interpol just premiered a new video, for the song “Barricade,” which is the second track off the band’s self-titled September 7 album (read SPIN’s review here).
The video explores an interesting concept: that you can project images on pretty much everything, including women. Check it out below!
The clip, directed by Moh Azima, opens with band members standing out in a prairie landscape-but there’s a catch: Each member is actually performing in front of a rectangular-shaped backdrop, meant to blend into the landscape (maybe a barricade?). Then comes the image of lead singer Paul Banks’ head projected on woman’s bodies. “Thieves and snakes need homes,” he sings. “It starts to feel like a barricade that keeps us away / To keep us away, it kind of does.”
The first Interpol track, “Lights,” dropped earlier this summer and is full of women dressed in vinyl and syringes-so there seems to be a theme going on. Check out the video here and download the MP3 here.
