Sweden’s Ghost announced their forthcoming album, Meliora, via a cryptic late-night VH1 Classic commercial back in May, and two days later they dropped the record’s first single. “Cirice” is a clamorous, performative track, and the new video is an adept accompaniment. A misfit little girl attends a talent show that quickly evolves into an apocalyptic reckoning of sorts when Ghost bewitches her with their performance. Roboshobo, the man most recently responsible for Mastodon’s excellent “High Road” video and the Killers’ “Shot At Night,” as well as dozens of of other impressive works, directs; watch below.
Meliora is out 8/21 via Loma Vista Recordings.
