Modest Mouse’s new video for their Strangers To Ourselves single “Lampshades On Fire” is a dizzy barrage of fucked-up and surreal imagery, presented almost entirely without context. A needle pierces a cheek. A mousetrap snaps on some guy’s tongue. A naked man jumps on a bed while Orange Is The New Black star Natasha Lyonne stares off into the middle distance. Various people with faces painted white wander the earth, looking supremely out-of-it. It’s hard to say what any of it means, but it’s all vivid and memorable. Jorge Torres-Torres directs. Watch it below.
Strangers To Ourselves is out now on Epic.
