If you want to be a good person, you generally have to rip off your unconvincing teenage façade of ironic detachment and feel real feelings. People hurt other people, and shame and regret can really fuck with your head. That's the territory Elvis Depressedly explores in their new video for the song "Thou Shall Not Murder." The track is off their upcoming album, New Alhambra, which comes out on May 12 via Run for Cover Records.

It's a beautiful, melancholic video, and director Micah Van Hove had this to say about it: "For me, the words and melodies on New Alhambra are bathing in a sense of reclaimed innocence that compelled me to explore how a child internalizes the notion of death for the first time."
