Elvis Depressedly share "Thou Shall Not Murder" video

Elvis Depressedly, the much beloved lo-fi bedroom recording project of Mat Cothran and Delaney Mills have released a beautiful new video for their latest single “Thou Shall Not Murder” ahead of the album’s release. The band recently joined forces with Run For Cover Records to release their upcoming full length, New Alhambra on May 12, which is now available for pre-order.
Vice premiered the band’s captivating video, sharing their sentiments, “People hurt other people, and shame and regret can really fuck with your head. That’s the territory Elvis Depressedly explores in their new video”. Directed by Micah Van Hove, the video is a breath-taking accompaniment to the band’s single, a contemplative journey through youth, innocence, despair, and death, with a wistful and wondrous beauty. Van Hove expanded on his video, sharing:
“Mat’s music has always made me think about death, but always through the lens of love. You’d be hard pressed to make it through a conversation with Mat or one of his albums without hearing a jubilant death wish, but I’ve always understood it as an expression of an overbearing feeling of love; a heart so heavy with love for this world and its people that the idea of death is merely a joke — a joke we tell our friends and lovers to keep them close, to remind them that the present is the most important gift we have. For me, the words and melodies on New Alhambra are bathing in a sense of reclaimed innocence that compelled me to explore how a child internalizes the notion of death for the first time.”
