Guess what? This is somehow a cover of Fleetwood Mac's track of the same name, but you wouldn't really know it. What it is though, is a cold, industrial track from Houston's //Tense//. The vibe of the whole thing is helped along by director Tommyboy, who turns the whole thing into a fucked up, multi-image display of blue and turquoise hues and weird grainy closeups. This one time we walked into a bathroom in a warehouse that was made entirely of cracked mirrors, and everything about this reminds us of that moment. "The Chain" is the b-side of //Tense//'s 7-inch on clothing line Mishka's burgeoning record label, get it here and be stoked that you own a record that has a dude with meat for a face on the cover.
