A new video from alt country group Band of Horses is totally rocking the leather biker vests off of team New Music this week. The up-beat, poppy track “Dilly” off of their album Infinite Arms is beautiful, cinematic and sometimes hilarious.
The video tells the story of a biker gang who terrorizes a restaurant and handles a police barricade using unconventional weapons and a little bit of superpower. My favourite part of the video is how well it stays with 1970’s special effects. I have never seen blood look so much like ketchup. The video is grainy and faded like it was found on a roll of lost film in the band’s parent’s basement after 35 years.
The video is directed by Philip Andelman who’s work you probably have seen recently in Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” and in Jonas Brothers’ “Lovebug” and Trey Songz’ “Already Taken.” The video is also the first time a music video has premiered exclusively on the movie information site IMDb. I was just reminded recently how much I love Band of Horses when they popped up on my iTunes shuffle and this creative video locked in my love.
“This is the first of our videos to truly capture the essence of what a day in our personal lives is actually like,” said Band of Horses front man Ben Bridwell in a press release. Believe him or not, the band members and the bikers at least have bushy hair in common.
