Watch: The Dodos – “Companions”

on May 26, 2011, 10:21am

If you haven’t figured it out by now, the duo that is The Dodos has been fairly ambiguous recently. Whether it be mislabeling their latest record as “unlistenable,” or their spooky/artistic boxing ring from the “Black Night” video, the Cali boys just haven’t been easy to pin down. That trends continues with the haunting, head-scratching video for “Companions.”

Noted for being one of the slower, simpler tracks (not withstanding that mind-numbingly intricate guitar plucking), the video starts out similarly. A gentleman buys a coffee and pack of smokes at a bodega, hits the road towards a picturesque sunset and then. . . well, that’s just about it for awhile. That is until he passes an eerie looking fellow walking the road. And then passes him again some time later. And again. You can watch for yourself above to see how the story unfolds, but needless-to-say the final 2 minutes of the clip will leave you unsure of what just happened.
