Watch Cloud Nothings’ Unsettling ‘Psychic Trauma’ Video
Go-to director John Ryan Manning gives 'Here and Nowhere Else' song simple treatment

After teaming up for the distressing videos for “No Future/No Past” and “Fall In,” among a whole host of others, Manning and the Cleveland quartet come together again on a more minimal clip for Here and Nowhere Else highlight “Psychic Trauma.” The visual features a color-drained Baldi and his band running through a simple rendition of the track, while jittery camera and post-production work lend the performance a familiar sense of unease.
