Oslo five-piece Einar Stray Orchestra have dropped the self-directed video for latest single ‘Politricks’ – the first taste of their upcoming album of the same name, due in September.

Frontman Stray has said that the video is intended to “tell a clear, outspoken story”, so perhaps this whimsically eerie portrait of a shadowy small-town cross-daubing cult reveals itself as an anti-Christian parable…? Whatever the subtext, it’s an evocative accompaniment to this slice of widescreen indie-pop melancholy.
