Romance is boring? This video is boring (ho ho!)! Really though, it’s not for lack of effort—the makeup is top notch!—but the visuals have no rhythm, the video has no meat to fill out its concept, and there is very little reward for paying close attention. There are like a hundred members in this band and nobody had any better ideas?

Los Campesinos! have done a lot of growing up in a short amount of time, but it is their vision and dedication to their core principles that has kept them humble and morphed them into a dependable and always exciting indie rock institution. May they never lose their vitality.
