I Break Horses – “You Burn” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Sweden’s I Break Horses dropped two tracks last year without much word of where they might end up. There was the bright synth pop of “Denial” followed by the frozen severity of “Faith.” They seemed like two sides of a coin which makes a lot more sense now that we know they’ll both be appearing on the duo’s second album, aptly titled Chiaroscuro (an art technique that uses drastic contrasts between light and darkness). Now you can check out the video for album opener “You Burn” which plays with those contrasts visually by clipping together footage of everything from ballerinas to bombs exploding. Watch the David Dean Burkhart-directed video below.

Chiaroscuro is out 1/20 via Bella Union.
