Algiers – “Black Eunuch” Video

Algiers were one of 2015’s first Bands To Watch, a trans-Atlantic gospel-punk trio of Southern ex-pats who make music steeped in revolutionary ideas. Their rage against the machine reaches a fever pitch in the jeering, flickering “Black Eunuch” video. It looks like a candlelit prayer service that devolved into a protest performance, the trio wailing on their instruments and literally losing themselves in the moment, as their images fade into those of the stones surrounding them. The video was created by the band and directed by bassist Lee Tesche. Watch it below and check out their summer tour dates.
