Leprous Wear a “Cloak”


Leprous’ new video for “The Cloak” would be a must-watch pretty much no matter what, because it’s the first time we’re getting to hear this new song from their forthcoming album, Coal (another track, “Chronic,” was released last month), and new Leprous music is always cause for celebration.

But as a bonus, the video is actually really good, and a terrific example of how simplicity need not be equated with boredom. Beautiful cinematography, clever editing, and a setting appropriate to the album’s title (it appears to be a mine) all make for a clip that’s far above average.

And, oh yeah, the song is great, too.


Coal comes out on May 28 via Inside Out.
