All those who were worried that Royksopp's The Inevitable End
was too-accurately named and that we'd never hear another gasp from them, might not be assuaged by all of the band's promises that they are NOT, in fact, done, just moving to different release formats, but might take some level of solace in the newly released music for the single "Skulls."
OK, maybe "solace" isn't the right word, since the music video looks as dark and doomed as the music sounds: it's all starkly-but-barely lit shots of a bunch of Eurotrash ravers hiding in a cabin in the woods and cooking what looks like gasoline (or meth or something sinister; it's used in some kind of ceremonial ways) and indulging in the kind of partying that smacks of the unholy. Even after the music stops we're still flash-cutting through strobe-lit images of robed figures in the woods and listening to chopped up noises straight out of a cheap knock-off of Eraserhead
It's probably not as disturbing as the band had hoped in the same way that the lyrics aren't quite as unsettling as they might have wanted, but it's good camp and the song still sounds good, two months later. So why not check it out below?
