'Sleep Well Beast' the video is titled, which peers voyeuristically into apartments as a fuzzy, discordant guitar riff plays over the top. There are no vocals from Matt Berninger, but the audio-visual has a dark vibe, reminiscent of tracks like 'Brainy', at least in tone if not in sound.
The red and blue colour scheme, coupled with the breaking news ticker and the words 'THE SYSTEM ONLY DREAMS IN TOTAL DARKNESS', suggests a possible political tinge to the new music.
The band has explored politics before with tracks like 'Mr. November', the music video for 'Conversation 16' and a performance in support of Obama, but have been more politically active than ever in the months since Donald Trump's election.
