Sweetest Kill

Even though band member Andrew Whiteman totally hates the concept of this video, I think I love just about every frame. It’s a tender ballad that’s surprisingly violent, so use your discretion. Honestly, if there was no shock value, I’m not sure if the song itself would have struck a deep chord with me. There’s something interesting about the juxtaposition of a soft, hypnotic melody and insane violence.
