Soulful Atlantans' new single gets archive-scouring video

Atlanta via London and New York sonic firebrands, curators of a very fine band website and one of the best things to land on tQ's stereo in recent times Algiers have just put up a video for 'Blood' from their upcoming, self-titled debut, set for release later this year on Matador. Musically, ceremonial drum thumps and tambourine shakes underpin cattle-baying guitar and some cold-light-of-day soulful vocals, while "the video envisions," we're told, "a parallel future where artistic and political revolutionaries convene across temporal and social space in shared revolt at our current predicament." Watch it above and keep an eye on tQ for an interview with the band.
