The Killers are not only known for their willingness to experiment with their sound but also their ability to pair their music with beautifully dynamic videos. From the avant-garde style of ‘Spaceman’ to the heartbreaking ‘Dustland Fairytale’, The Killers know how to compliment their singles with stunning, visual stories.
Their new video for ‘Rut’, their 3rd single from the album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’, is no different. Rut itself is a turn towards an 80s inspired, uplifting beat that could be placed in any great John Hughes movies. The video follows an otherwise somber mood that eventually breaks into an uplifting “I’ll never give up on you” moment. The payoff is worth it as you come to realize exactly what the story is about. Dust off your old Boombox because you’ll want to thrust that thing into the air after watching this one.
