Los Angeles twinkle-rockers Silversun Pickups have a new album called Better Nature coming out next month, and they’ve just unveiled the glamorous, elaborate video for “Nightlight,” its first single. The song is a big, gleaming guitar-churn, the sort of big studio-rock anthem that not many people make anymore. And for the video, they linked up with the veteran music-video director Mark Pellington, best-known for directing Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” video and for the movie Arlington Road. The video is an exercise in S&M-damaged L.A. noir aesthetics, with Boardwalk Empire actress Meg Steedle playing a femme fatale in a hallucinatory world. -- Stereogum
