Miike Snow – “The Wave” Video

By Tom Breihan / March 15, 2012

Last month, we posted Swedish popsters Miike Snow’s “Paddling Out” video, in which aliens kidnap earthlings and attempt to transform them into perfect beings. Today, we get the sequel in the form of the band’s video for “The Wave,” in which all those experimented-upon earthlings return and invade. It’s all slapsticky absurdism, but then there’s also a playground full of dead kids. I don’t think it’s supposed to be depressing, but it totally is. Watch it below.

Miike Snow’s album Happy To You is out 3/27 on Downtown/Universal Republic.
