The video for Spring King’s “Demons” feels like an exorcism in visual form, frenzied and manic. It follows a few different characters towards their eventual breakdowns: a man exercising, a magician going mad, a self-conscious dancer. All of their anxieties manifest themselves in violent and disturbing ways. The fuzzy and jerky quality of the video, which was directed by Jack Whiteley, only adds to the craziness, purposefully making it a little hard to figure out exactly what’s going on. The music itself is celebratory stuff — the UK band makes anthemic power-punk, and this song has a rousing chorus that feels like it’s been around for decades. Watch below.
