Earlier this year, Algiers released their excellent self-titled debut album, which has launched a handful of singles. The latest, “And When You Fall,” now has a new video that’s intense, creepy and cool. In a Facebook post, the band says that the clips is inspired by experimental filmmaker Ernie Gehr, industrial pioneers Cabaret Voltaire and “yes, anti-capitalism.” It’s a black and white clip, directed by LAMB & SEA, juxtaposing footage of the band performing against some creepy, dark shots of analog tape static, artfully twitchy distortion and what looks a bit like surveillance video. It’s exactly the sort of thing we needed to usher in a season of chilling, uneasy music and art.
