After the epic 2010 video for Mogwai's "How To Be A Werewolf," director Antony Crook has collaborated with the Scottish indie legends on a video for "The Lord is Out of Control," off of their upcoming album Raves Tapes. The song is vintage Mogwai, all liquid distortion and sparkling guitars beneath soft, processed vocals. The video, which premiered on Noisey, emphasizes the weirder, darker side of things, with dancing gymnasts, a hard-faced man raising masks on tall poles, and a shiny-jacketed figure wandering the landscape. The darkness is relieved only in the final seconds, when the sun comes out in full. Watch above.
Raves Tapes is due out January 21 in North America via Sub Pop.
