Music Video: Death From Above 1979 “Virgins”

virgins-deathfromabove1979a

Death From Above 1979’s first album was a classic but for whatever reason I completely slept on their follow up to it in September. “Virgins” is their third single off of The Physical World and it makes me wanna go back and give it a listen.

Sebastien Grainger’s voice sounds as good as it did ten years ago and this video directed by his wife, Eva Michon, is an instant-classic. Check out the other videos on her site and her magazine, Bad Day. Watch some Amish kids get wild, eat flowers, and sniff ashes in the video below.
