King Khan & The Shrines – “Darkness” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 25, 2013

King Khan’s about to release Idle No More, his first album in six years with the psychedelic garage-soul band the Shrines, and we posted their song “Born To Die” a little while back. That song sounded nothing like “Darkness,” a slow-burner ballad and the basis for the band’s new music video. The German animation crew Hylas put the clip together expertly, using a claymation circus strongman and human cannonball to ask some existential questions. Check it out below.
