Cat Velez - 29th June 2016

Metal band Of Mice & Men's new video for Pain, directed by Mark Lediard, combines a stark, black and white performance, with eery footage of girls in leotards writhing on the ground, contorted in pain - and then contorting some more.

It's a bleak, angst-ridden, darkly humourous vision, employing overlayed video clips, and sped-up footage, heightening the sense of jitteriness and dread. It's cool stuff.
