The Raveonettes released a new video today for the song "Curse The Night," off of their latest album Observator. There's a story behind the video as told by the directors Storm/Hansen, which was told via Stereogum: "“Curse The Night” is an extremely visual song and required an atmospheric video to go with the moody track. We knew from the minute we heard it that it had to be in black and white. There’s a loneliness and solitude to the music that called for an empty city at night and we actually came up with two very different ideas that we pitched to Sune and Sharin. In one idea only they would be in the video and in the other, they wouldn’t be in it at all."
Read Stereogum for the whole big quote, but they also added "It was important for them to include an element of surprise, something unexpected that wasn’t a cute finale and that’s how we came to the ending that’s now in the video. You basically take the story of The Pied Piper and mix it with The Town or Point Break and you have the plot."
