Things end where they begin in Twin Peaks’ video for “Wanted You” — watch

    Don’t hurt yourself trying to find a narrative story in Twin Peaks’ new video for “Wanted You” off Down in Heaven. Sure, a lot of stuff happens — singer/guitarist Clay Frankel gets drunkenly thrown out of bar, people in animal masks play a game of soccer, and there’s even some live footage cut in there — but none of it really threads together. And it’s frankly not supposed to; it’s really all about mood.

    “We had a list of a few things when we started; snow, old car, candles, paint, coats, chess, animal masks,” Frankel said in a statement. “Most of it was things we had lying around. We improvised it and then we played with the editing, using reverse footage, to give it a cycle, so it ends where it begins.” It certainly looks like they had a good time, even if it doesn’t seem like they were doing much of anything. Watch the clip above.

    The video drops as Twin Peaks kick off their 10-date tour with Hinds, which continues tonight in Seattle. The Chicago band have also expanded their summer itinerary, which comes in support of their recent live album, Urbs in Horto (out digitally now with vinyl coming May 5th). The new dates include shows with Spoon and Ron Gallo. Find their complete itinerary below.
