In case you’re not hip to such things, Broken Social Scene are a Canadian indie rock supergroup best known for their collective good time, love-in vibe and expansive jams. But their newest video for “Sweetest Kill” from their latest album Forgiveness Rock Record abandons that image altogether.
Starring Bijou Phillips (where has she been?), the spot directed by Claire Edmondson plays out almost like an episode of “Dexter.” It starts off looking like a gauzy romantic vid, before the plastic is brought out and limbs are being sawed off. It’s actually pretty graphic and this may not be something you want playing at the office. But if you can’t stomach the video, maybe just put it on and open another window in your browser because the track is pretty damn great.
