Sylvan Esso's Video for "Dreamy Bruises" Makes the Apocalypse Look Hella Fun

Is this an M. Night Shyamalan short? Is it ever wise to follow a bouncing ball into the woods?

Is this an M. Night Shyamalan short? Is it ever wise to follow a bouncing ball into the woods? Where are Amelia and Nichoas driving too and can we come? Is the apocalypse just an excuse to dance in time with everyone in the world even though living in the world is like dancing out of step with everyone else for the duration of your existence?

Whatever. Sylvan Esso have a video out for the synthy, slightly sinister "Dreamy Bruises" (ain't nothing dreamy about a bruise), and these are just some of the questions it raised for me.


P.S. If you wanna remix this tune, here are the stems! Tweet us the results.
