The Shins 'It's Only Life': 'The Road' Meets 'Monsters Inc.'

This morning, The Shins released their music video for "It's Only Life," the newest single off of their 2012 album, Port of Morrow. In it we split time between an ankle-dragged James Mercer and a child who's wandering around a wasteland, seemingly making the best out of the end of the world. It's sort of poignant how the kid is doing all the things he'll probably never get to actually do -- drive a car, shoot fireworks -- while the adult Mercer is dragged to an assumed grotesque death at the hands of a shrub-looking monster. Anyways, for a Shins a song that's a tad dour, did you expect anything else besides a monster-apocalypse music video?

See it below.
