Chicago post-rock unit Owls played their hand big last week by delivering Two, their first album in 13 years. Now, the quartet are raising the stakes with a mysterious, gambling-themed video for the album's "I'm Surprised."
The back and forth throughout the video involves shots of the band craftily getting through the soft and polyrhythmic track, whether it's Victor Villarreal crouched on the ground with a guitar across his lap or Mike Kinsella tapping on his blanketed drum kit, and a game of cards. The ritualistic game cycles through a series of players, with a feast of fruit and wine presented alongside a skull, making the scenario somewhat ominous.
The winner is unclear, but you can check out the game up above. -- Exclaim!
