New Alt-J Video Narrated by Iggy Pop Takes a Dark Turn

May 9, 2017

What starts out as punk rock legend Iggy Pop narrating one of those nature documentaries about a wood mouse that looks totally f***ed surrounded by snakes and foxes ends up being an Alt-J music video for their new song "In Cold Blood" featuring some sort of deal gone wrong in the middle of the desert.

There's a lot going on here.

Let's see if we can figure the Casper Balsley-directed music video out.

-This wood mouse got mixed up with the wrong people.
-We finally see what happened to Luke Skywalker's human hand.
-Apparently, blood is a natural aphrodisiac. 
-Wood mouse would really love to help out with gas for the ride back to town, but you see, the thing is that wood mouse forgot his wallet back in that big bloody mess. Think you could spot wood mouse a few bucks?

Alt-J's new album, Relaxer, is due out June 2, with Alt-J making the rounds on a North American tour which kicks off in October.
