Merchandise debut new video for ‘Lonesome Sound’

It's "a more mythical or classical representation of the lyrics," apparently.
Merchandise have revealed a new video for ‘Lonesome Sound’.

The track is taken from their new album, ‘A Corpse Wired For Sound’, which is set for release on September 23rd via 4AD.

Explaining the video, the band’s Carson Cox explains: “The video for Lonesome Sound is meant to be a more mythical or classical representation of the lyrics. The Woman as Goddess and the Man as her vessel. The two mime an abstract love story on an empty stage. Television static represents the void and loneliness of Earth where there are other signs of life but are totally incomprehensible. The static is also a symbol of media and the distortion of communication. A silent cowboy whistles Jimmie Rodgers under the moon on a blank Earth. These are the only two witnesses to the shadow play.”
