A Place To Bury Strangers Share Video For New Single “There’s Only One Of Us”

A Place To Bury Strangers has revealed the next single from their forthcoming album, Pinned. “There’s Only One Of Us” is a haunting, harmonized response to the tensions of our current political climate. Guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann says about the song, “I am a person. We are all animals. We are all on this planet. This planet is one of billions speeding through space. It is incredible to be alive.”


Accompanying today’s single release is a video directed by Elizabeth Skadden. “The inspiration comes from the foghorn bass line, military drum beat, and kamikaze guitars that intimate a war taking place,” says Skadden. “Talking to the band, I learned the ‘war’ was people under the siege of making a creative project. The work the band does to create the song is expressed in the ‘totem’ built over the course of the music video. Visually, I broke the song into its sonic elements and assigned each its own visual, such as the shifting red and blue lights. The lighting setups were inspired by a Fad Gadget performance from the 1980s and films by Pedro Almodovar and Kathryn Bigelow.”
