The Walkmen - "Heaven" Video

The Walkmen’s masterful new album Heaven is finally out, and the brand-new video for the title track uses photo collages and archival footage to show the band’s evolution over the years. It turns out they weren’t always quite as suave as they are now. In the video, we see old photos of the band members clutching instruments as kids and, I’m pretty sure, a quick glimpse of the lamented pre-Walkmen band Jonathan Fire*Eater. Alex Southam directs. Watch it below.

  1. It might have been what I ate for lunch but didn’t anyone get dizzy from all the cuts?

  2. reminded me of seeing them in ’02 at Club Downunder at the FSU campus soon after the first record came out and i had to hold onto Ham’s legs so he wouldn’t fall off his monitor while he belted out wake up…good times, good times.
