Canadian indie rockers Destroyer have simply launched a brand new song video for his or her unmarried “Stay Lost.” The video’s free up comes along the beginning of Destroyer’s two-month North American excursion, starting this night, Jan. 10, in Portland, Ore.
Lead by way of singer and frontman Dan Bejar, Destroyer was once born in 1995 as a home-recording challenge that expanded to deliver its unbiased summary sounds to the loads. Bejar calls the gang’s new video “a user’s guide to the world.”
The “Stay Lost” video, submerged within the tune’s ambient electronica over flanging guitar results, follows the narrative of a person who, even though surrounded by way of friends and family, stays perpetually by myself. The guy builds a brand new international for himself, in between interlocking maps of tubing and psychedelic visuals of what seems to be the interior of the protagonist’s thoughts. In the tip, its published that what the primary persona was once construction was once not anything greater than what can most effective be described as visible gibberish, entire with irrational doors and piles of insulation placing off the aspect.
Oddly sufficient, the video takes us during the painstaking means of the nature’s adventure, sparsely chopping wooden, caulking tile and obsessing over a construction which, on the finish, is published to make no sense.
Maxwell McCabe-Lokos, director of the video, had this to mention:
The video tries to seize the tune’s wit and skill to painting any person’s preoccupation, their metaphysical situation, with so few phrases. Stay Lost—an endorsement for many who don’t are compatible, for many who will construct their very own totems, and revel of their skill to do it.
“Stay Lost” is a unmarried off Destroyer’s 12th album ken., to be had now. Watch the “Stay Lost” video and spot the band’s excursion dates underneath.
