New HEALTH Video – “Die Slow”

On the eve of a pair of Los Angeles shows in support of Nine Inch Nails, recently remixed noise-rockers HEALTH have released a self-directed video for Get Color standout “Die Slow.” (It just dawned on me: The song opens with the staccato feel of Big Black rewritten for synthesizer before it transitions into dark-wave territory.) The pulsating, ultimately bloody clip overlays footage of the band rocking out, fashionable girls dancing, bodies writhing all over the place Roman orgy-style, and a zillion flashes. In the spirit of the quartet’s Golden Ticket Sweepstakes, they also manage to work in a phone number, an infomercial’s blank stare, and cheeky ordering instructions.

Get Color is out next week (9/8) via Lovepump. As mentioned, the guys hit the road tomorrow. The first two shows are with NIN, the rest with Pictureplane.
