Bandit, 'The Drive Home'
Bring a nice camera if you're going to Iceland. That's the setting of the gorgeously shot video for "The Drive Home," the opening track to Bandit's debut album, Of Life.
The video shimmers quietly on dark highways amid endless skies and a trumpet's countermelody. But just as you start to drift off to Angela Plake's lullaby-like words — "You'll be home soon before it's too late" — the band suddenly crashes down in 40 seconds of cymbals and bummer distortion, cutting the snowcapped grandeur of Derek Scearce's visuals in time with the drama.
Of Life is out now on Broken Circles.
