Directed by Lamb & Sea 


After “But She Was Not Flying” and “Blood,” I didn’t expect gospel-electro-noise-punk anomaly Algiers to release something for the club. But the drum-machine rhythm and house melody that drive “Irony. Utility. Pretext.” are undeniably dance-floor ready. Admittedly, given the desperation and midnight bleakness coursing through it, the song would work better as chase music for a 1980s episode of COPS, but you could definitely dance to it too. Directors Lamb & Sea’s video begins with the message, “THE MOST PAINFUL STATE OF BEING IS REMEMBERING THE FUTURE,” which certainly matches the song’s dystopian feel. Watch the trio sneer and stare in Bulgaria’s Buzludzha Monument above.
