Divine Fits – “Would That Not Be Nice” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

A couple of months ago, Divine Fits, the new Britt Daniel/Dan Boeckner/Sam Brown supergroup, released their debut album A Thing Called Divine Fits. And “Would That Not Be Nice,” their terse and hard-pounding first single together, is quietly proving to be one of 2012’s greatest, most enduring rock songs. Today, the song gets a video from director Brian Butler, who shoots them in disorienting close-up, lit dramatically and bathed in shadow. He also throws in a few random shots of skulls and floods, for good measure. Watch it below.

A Thing Called Divine Fits is out now on Merge.
