Dark Dark Dark Unveil Video For “Tell Me”

Dark Dark Dark’s new record, Who Needs Who, was released earlier this month to quite the acclaim. The gorgeous ballads and waltzes found within are anchored by Nona Marie Invie’s evocative vocals and the band’s lush arrangements. One of the album’s standouts, “Tell Me,” has been brought to life in this visually stunning video directed by Isaac Gale, a Minneapolis native who has done videos for Bon Iver, P.O.S, Colin Stetson and Poli├ža. The video shows Nona isolated from the rest of the world, donning a Space Odyssey helmet, and traversing the backwoods of forgotten memories in search of something, anything familiar. The video premiered earlier today on Noisey.
