British rockers Drahla are agile crafters of industrial, experimental punk. On Monday, they shared a new video for one of their most industrial, most experimental tracks, the speedy “Twelve Divisions of the Day.” When you’re watching the video, be careful not to look away for long—you just might miss one of its many unexplained frames. Watch the arty clip down below.
During the video, band members create chalk drawings, point mirrors to the sky and recreate their album art on the wall. Lead vocalist Luciel Brown offered some explanation of the video’s more abstract elements, which pair well with the song’s off-kilter guitar, blunt spoken word and thrashing drums. “The video is an abstracted representation of process and routine,” she said. “This is depicted through the recreation of the cover artwork and repetitive nature of the content used.”
The band recently signed to Brooklyn-based Captured Tracks, and the label sorted all of Drahla’s already-released music into a compilation, A Compact Cassette, which you can purchase on tape. You can also stream the album on Spotify.
Drahla are kicking off a tour stateside on Oct. 18 in New York. You can find all their dates get tickets right here.
