Crown Larks – “Chapels” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

On their recent debut Blood Dancer, genre-bending Chicago outfit Crown Larks threw psych-rock, noise music, and free jazz into one album-shaped pot and stirred until the whole thing combusted. “Chapels” is one of the more straightforward tracks — and even that spins out into a demented keyboard boogie towards the end — but now they’ve shared a new video that significantly ups the weirdness factor. The band plays in grotesque masks and costumes while two wraithlike women wander around various landscapes, contorting their bodies inhumanly. I have no idea what any of it means, but you should probably watch the Emily Esperanza-directed video below.
