Foals seem to be taking the minimalist approach to their videos this album cycle ’round. Hell, they even got freakin’ Nabil to direct a narrative, and it was largely just a simple breakup story. The rest of them have been strictly performance-based, from their one for “Mountain At My Gates” (Nabil again) to their series of CCTV sessions. So it should come as little surprise that their new clip for What Went Down track “Birch Tree” is a simple hang-out-with-the-band-in-LA affair, directed on Super 8 by Dave Ma. But at least it looks like they had a good time! Watch below.
