The Hounds Below, the new outfit from ex-Von Bondies frontman Jason Stollsteimer, present a seemingly innocent tale of boy-meets-girl in their new music video for “Since He Came To Play”. Sure, the girl’s an anthropomorphized bird, but the emotional connection she has with the boy is right up there with your Joanies and Chachis.
Something’s afoot though, as indicated by a few haunting signs: the random graveyard shots, the car driving down the street, and her pained bird calls. Without spoiling too much, there’s a twist that should leave viewers with all sorts of queries on the power of the human soul, the capabilities of young love, and, perhaps the most important of them all, did 1993’s The Crow have it right all along?
Figure it out by streaming the video below.
The band’s latest album, You Light Me Up In The Dark, is out now via Slimstyle Records.
