Published Jun 21, 2012The video for "Holding on to Something," the latest single from Montreal indie rock trio Parlovr, begins with some text that reads, "In which Alex [Cooper] plays the piano and the song begins and none are aware of their terrible fates." What ensues definitely doesn't disappoint.
The clip is truly a strange one, as drummer Jeremy MacCuish becomes infected with a mysterious illness and jagged crystals begin sprouting out through his skin. His bandmates, meanwhile, stroke a lizard and pull ridiculous faces for the camera in ultra-slow motion. Eventually, everyone meets a grizzly and mysterious fate.
The peppy "Holding on to Something" comes from Kool Soul, which dropped last month via Dine Alone Records.
