Ought "Sun's Coming Down" (video)

Ought 'Sun's Coming Down' (video)
Today (September 18) is release day for Ought, who released Sun Coming Down via Constellation, and the Montreal band are celebrating with a music video for the sort-of-title-track "Sun's Coming Down."

The song is a squalling, half-spoken post-punk track, and the music adds a threatening sense of menace to everything that happens in the clip. We see three young women biking around town and stopping for ice cream, and things take a turn for the symbolic as a boy watches his ice cream melt, the girls smash plates with their bikes, a bird sits in its cage, and we see a collection of broken mirrors.

Check out the cryptic clip, directed by Aaliyeh Afshar, below.
