In the video for the new Los Campesinos! video “Hello Sadness,” a mob of hooded art-school terrorists kidnap the members of the band, forcing them to do mundane tasks like trimming their beards and eating spaghetti. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but it does lead to a closing twist that I didn’t see coming. I won’t spoil it; just know that this is the unbelievably twee Hostel sequel that nobody anticipated. Casey Raymond and Ewan Jones Morris direct. Watch it below.
The new Los Campesinos! album Hello Sadness is out today on Wichita.
