Earlier this year, Modest Mouse returned from a years-long absence with the new album Strangers To Ourselves, and as we learn from their new video for the single “The Ground Walks, With Time In A Box,” they may have just been spending that time away perching on Oregon garbage dumps. In the new video, the band lives in a fantastical dreamworld made entirely out of trash, wearing plastic-bag headdresses and clutching scepters made of broken lightbulbs. My favorite might have been the crown of discarded keys. The clip features pretty-lady apparitions and kabuki sorcerers, and it ends with Isaac Brock fighting a guy dressed entirely in old ties, leading to a blood finale that’s probably meant to evoke the fight between the Mountain and the Viper on the last season of Game Of Thrones. Check it out below.
Strangers To Ourselves is out now on Epic.
