Published Oct 16, 2012Fans of New York post-punk folkies Cult of Youth have no doubt checked out the troupe's latest acoustic-strum-assisted LP Love Will Prevail by now, but the band are further promoting the set with a new video for album track "Man and Man's Ruin."
We'd already been engaged by the elegant brass and guitar arrangement, so now is the time to soak in the accompanying visuals, which jump from the sudsy tides of an ocean, to a flower-filled field, to the remnants of an art studio filled with broken plaster statues of yore.
You can piece together the meaning of the video, which seems to reflect on both nature and, as the band hint in the song, the "nature of man," in the player down below.
Also, don't forget that Cult of Youth start their North American tour today (October 16). The trip lands them in Vancouver on October 25.
