The War on Drugs Share Strangely Sweet "Nothing to Find" Video, Starring <i>IT</i>'s Sophia Lillis

Still riding the momentum from the recent release of their acclaimed fourth album A Deeper Understanding, The War on Drugs have shared the video for “Nothing to Find,” starring young actress Sophia Lillis (of IT fame), who embarks on a road trip with some sort of plant man.

Directed by Ben Fee, the offbeat video “presents the bittersweet story of two friends on a not-so-classic road trip adventure,” per a press release, following Lillis’ character and Plant Man as they commit petty theft, commune with nature, shoot pool and have a dance party, until eventually Plant Man falls ill and returns to the earth. For all its sweetness, the video is awfully sobering: Whether plant or person, we all have our time, it reminds us—or as Adam Granduciel sings, “There is nothing I can do if I am going away.” But the video’s closing moments, which we won’t spoil for you here, offer a glimmer of hope for what we may find in the hereafter.

The War on Drugs  recently wrapped up their first North American tour in support of A Deeper Understanding, and they’ll follow it up with a November trip across the pond for a series of mostly sold-out European shows before returning to the States for a brief run in December. You’ll find the band’s full slate of upcoming tour dates further down this page.
