It’s been a of couple years since Vancouver’s White Lung unleashed the awesomely thrashing controlled chaos that was their third album, Deep Fantasy. It landed in the top 10 our best albums list that year, and we haven’t been the only ones fiending for more in the interim. Well, the wait for new White Lung is over. A new album called Paradise is due out this spring on Domino, and today they’ve shared a video for the surprisingly poppy lead single “Hungry.”

The song comprises exquisite layers of guitar perfectly colliding over punishing drums and plenty of crashing cymbals — a sign of the quick, furious 28 minutes the album contains. As for the video, it stars Amber Tamblyn as a vain, ornery socialite who can’t seem to look good enough for herself despite all of the batshit desperate measures she takes to improve her look. Justin Gradin and White Lung’s Mish Barber-Way direct. Also look out for a cameo from Deafheaven’s George Clarke.

Tamblyn’s character combs her eyelashes with egg yokes, douses her face with Paradise brand condensed milk (which has her face on the package), and is transfixed by her reflection at every opportunity. She never quite sees what she hopes, though, because her mirrored self is frontwoman Mish Barber-Way screaming the lyrics at her harshly. The particularly resonant first half of the refrain “Baby you’re weak/ Baby your starvin” seems to follow her wherever she goes. Unable to escape her mild fame as the girl on the condensed milk can, she eventually falls into a pool trying to rid herself of the haunting image she sees looking back at her. Killer song. Killer video. Hell yes. Welcome back, White Lung!
