CMJ: Old Monk “Secrets In The Lawn” Video Premiere


The NYC trio called Old Monk may have released their second album, Posing As Love (Eenie Meenie), in sunny June, and just wrapped up a full U.S. summer tour. But this brand new video for Secrets In The Lawn that we’re premiering today looks and feels like the band is ready to take an eerie trip into the dark woods of the fall. Drooping characters throw things off bridges and traipse through sickly colored hallways, murderers get murdered and shadows lurk. Meanwhile, the tricky, minimal, brooding art-rock tune slowly builds, with intermittent spastic choruses, into a race.

Check out the video below, and look for them live in NYC soon, dates below, including the CMJ Music Marathon.

Directed by Hiroaki Sasa
