Ought "Sun's Coming Down" (video)
Published Sep 18, 2015Today (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.
