What the heck is going on in Northampton, England?
Some heavy stuff, apparently: the new video from that town’s Mercury Prize-nominated electronic artist Maps is rife with dark, beguiling imagery. The clip — accompanied by the song “A.M.A.,” the first single of the brand-new album Vicissitude — from seemingly unconscious people at a creek to a seemingly unconscious man with Joker facepaint at the wheel of a vintage Volvo. In other words, lots of unconscious people.
But there is light at the end of the tunnel! Without giving away too much, let’s just say the clip gets pretty lively towards the end. Take a look below:
