The War On Drugs // Brothers video

An American Western with a twist brings a dark angle to ‘Brothers’, the latest single from The War On Drugs  album ‘Slave Ambient’ out on Secretly Canadian. Ben and Alex Brewer, the Directing team, explain “We kept picturing it as the soundtrack to a dark western like Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid or Unforgiven. That is where the deranged T.V cowboy character came from. We wanted the video to feel like the most exciting five minutes taken out of a longer movie. The biggest challenge in the filming was how to make the old cowboy (played by David Weindel) seem threatening, and how to make the nurse (played by Tallie Medel) seem like she was dealing with the situation the way a normal person might really handle such a nightmare.”
