Craft Spells make wonderfully dour guitar-pop that’s half Joy Division, half Smiths. Their debut album Idle Labor came out in April, and they’ve got a new video out for one of its best tracks, “Your Tomb”. In the video, Crafts Spells’ front man/creative workhorse Justin Vallesteros is roped into a surveillance mission targeting a subtly terrifying young woman having a birthday party for herself. The video gleefully plays with your typical music video conventions, a femme fatale, a dead-pan lead, blood splattering over a birthday cake, and an un-explainable transition from narrative to full-band performance that ends in triple homicide. And it’s a great pop song!
