The slow-burning, maximalist "High Road" was our first taste from Cults' upcoming Static, and it's also the first to get a visual accompaniment. It's a fantastic video that's reminding us of a distilled Hitchcock movie - intensely stylistic, eerie, black and white, full of uncanny repeated images. Madeline Follin's not blonde, but she could serve as our Hitchcockian heroine, the camera following her and always finding her through her attempts to escape. The whole thing ends in a bust of flame - we're hoping those who had issues with Vampire Weekend's Saab-torching don't see this one. Check it out - Static is out October 15.
