New Depeche Mode Video – “Wrong”

Depeche Mode unveiled this anxious and angsty track over the weekend at Germany’s Echo Awards, and their internet-press savvy is on display with its official video: released within the week for web embedding, directed by the indie-band friendly string-puller Patrick Daughters. The clip is fairly evil and memorable — a poor schlub finds himself as the living embodiment of “wrong place at the wrong time” (masked and bound in a Christine car moving in reverse, gradually making his predicament increasingly dire) — and Gahan’s guys only needed to turn up for a momentary reaction shot as said possessed car rolls by on its way to vehicular homicide. Executed like an outfit with real experience, this one.
