It's not clear exactly who is doing what in Muse
's video for their latest single "Madness." As if the lyric video wasn't crazy enough
. A dimly lit Tube station is subjected to riot police, smoke, turnstile jumpers, some chick in a skimpy trench-coat, screaming, and the band itself, playing a touchscreen guitar and a giant gong. It's all neatly stylized with a neo-noir color scheme, accentuating the band's flair for post-apocalyptic themes. And the slightly pulsating frame towards the end really adds to the maddening effect of the whole adventure. Hold tightly on to your sanity.
