The War On Drugs‘ video for “Brothers” takes a hostage situation to delightfully creepy heights. Dubbed a “western nightmare” by directors/brothers Ben and Alex Brewer, the video features a gun-toting geriatric, scenes from old Westerns and plenty of duct tape. Shades of “No Country for Old Men” come through, fitting perfectly with the band’s atmospheric brand of americana-tinged rock. It ends, like a good episode of 24, with the viewer wondering what will happen next. Slave Ambient is out now on Secretly Canadian.
