Everyone loves Band of Horses these days. Last month we saw Gnarls’ Barkley’s Cee-Lo Green (he of recent “F*** You” fame) cover “No One’s Gonna Love You” with a road trip-gone-wrong video. Now Stockholm’s Shout Out Louds put their spacey spin on Cease to Begin standout “Is There a Ghost?” The quintet translate the lyrics to Swedish; the new title “Spöken” is Swedish for “Ghost.” (via Pitchfork via Merge)
The video features the band sadly wandering on some industrial age monstrosity. Water purification plant? Primitive cell tower? Oil rig on land? Whatever is it, it appears to have been the causality of this or some other recession. Desolate imagery for a desolate song. Watch it below, then post your guess of what this place is in the comments.
