Revisiting their third album, 2016’s appropriately- titled Three, Phantogram drop a video for “Funeral Pyre.”

Shot from the perspective of the passenger’s seat of a car, director Gianluca Minucci describes the visual as “a phantasmagoric journey, from dawn to dusk, with people, sites, and situations of Los Angeles. The video is a phantom drive in a land of nowhere, where love meets grief, loneliness, violence and desperation. It’s a tragic, Pynchonian elegy, of a world destined to a destroying, but perhaps purifying, fire. A descent to hell, the swan song of a city that celebrates its funeral pyre.”

It’s also kinda NSFW-ish, so… there’s that too.
