Earlier this year, the Portland indie-pop duo Wampire became a Band To Watch — this, despite them being named “Wampire” and everything — and released Curiosity, their debut album, which Universal Mortal Orchestra’s Jake Portrait produced. Today, they give us their video for the single “The Hearse.” It tells the story of an ’80s-style photo shoot that turns dark and obsessive and violent. Its use of period-specific detail and atmosphere is dead-on, even though I’m pretty sure the ending makes no sense whatsoever. Raphaël Pfeiffer directs. Check it out below.
