Mew - Repeaterbeater (video)

Mew just released a video for “Repeaterbeater”, the second single from their latest album, the frustratingly titled No more stories / Are told today / I’m sorry / They washed away / No more stories / The world is grey / I’m tired / Let’s wash away. It takes the band to an eerie Victorian mansion/ritzy old folks home to take some trippy drugs, or so it seems. The schizo-imagery paired with the haunting beats does well at keeping the viewers’ attention—a very nice follow-up to the weirdness of “Introducing Palace Players”, the first single off No More Stories.
