Published Nov 01, 2013Beautiful plumes be damned, the new video for Strokes six-stringer Albert Hammond Jr.'s "Carnal Cruise" shows off the mind-bending dangers of excessive smoke inhalation.
The track, off the artist's AHJ EP, plays to his natural inclination towards spindly post-punk melodies. As for the video, it has Hammond Jr. stumbling around a forest scene just covered with smoke bomb mist. While at first we see him surrounded by clouds of orange, blue and pink, all that smoke eventually contributes to a hallucinatory scene mixing branches and body parts. You'll see the results down below.
