Depeche Mode are probably so stoked right now. Or maybe angry? We have no idea. Don't be angry Depeche Mode, people just really like your what you did. And by people we mean TRUST, who take smokey synth jams to the next level with "Candy Walls." Despite the fact that the video features a lot of innocuous but brooding activities like eating gummy cola bottles (so good), gingerly stepping into a stream and staring at nothing, there's still something beautifully seedy about the track, which somehow manages to be weathered, cynical and wide-eyed all at once. Probably gonna end up watching this ten times today alone. Stereogum has the MP3 and on March 29th Sacred Bones will have the 7-inch.
