The stuttering and dreamy No More Stories… standout “Introducing Palace Players” gets a Martin De Thura-directed video that incorporates frogs, horses, a forest, one possessed car, and lots of floating, sentient rocks (that can shoot laser beams obvs) into one single narrative that makes pretty much no sense. Great! See if you can try? The band tells Spinner, “Don’t feel like an idiot if it all doesn’t add up in the end.” Fair enough. Anyway, it’s a great song, part of the excellent four-song arc that introduces Mew’s latest LP, so watch it and make sure not to feel like an idiot.
No More Stories… is out 8/25.
