Destroyer's Surreal Video For the Dreamy, Romantic 'Kaputt'

The first video from Destroyer's new album 'Kaputt' is as strange and beautiful as the music itself

By |

Destroyer's 10th album Kaputt is one of the best albums hitting stores this week. (Read Jon Dolan's review of Kaputt and listen to two songs from the album, "Kaputt" and "Chinatown.") Dan Bejar has been turning out great tunes as Destroyer and as a member of the New Pornographers for over a decade, but the nostalgic, atmospheric quality of this new album is a breakthrough for the songwriter. The video for the record's title track suits the dreamy early-Eighties glossiness of the music perfectly, matching its yearning, romantic tone with surreal images from a teenage boy's lonely fantasies.
