Video: Cains & Abels - 'Stay Home Tonight'

By Sasha Geffen

With its nearly imperceptible narrative, the video for Cains & Abels's standout track "Stay Home Tonight" remains arresting on the basis of its simple yet perplexing imagery. Lead singer David Sampson wanders the city at night; a row of driverless cars pulse their headlights in unison; Sampson sets off smoke bombs at a house party. Like the song itself, the video's literal content is opaque, but the tone immediately engages.

The new Cains & Abels LP My Life is Easy is out now on Whistler Records.
