Manchester Orchestra
"The Alien"
5 mins 37s
28 June 2017
UK Promos

While indie rockers Manchester Orchestra remain sure-footed, this grieving woman endures the eye of a private storm. Closure becomes a personal cataclysm here: glass shatters, wood splinters, and ashes turn into a whirlwind as her homecoming unfolds in reverse.

It’s a familiar technique, but the rewind effect produces some compelling and bruising imagery. With PrettyBird’s Daniels on creative direction duty, Mike Dempsey keeps a tight rein on this temporal family drama.

Meanwhile, Manchester Orchestra’s sombre track is laced with family strife and small-town happenstance e.g. ‘When the first officer arrived / It happened to be the high school bully of your brother’. Well, we’ve all been there.
