Video: A Place To Bury Strangers, "And I'm Up"

A Place To Bury Strangers’ "And I'm Up" is one of those perfect downers. It's the kind of song that doesn't make you feel better about anything at all, just more miserable. But that's alright! There's good times to be had in those songs. Weary and half-awake, A Place To Bury Strangers' Oliver Ackerman sings about always doing bad, even when he's not trying to. It's a song about embracing your self-destructive tendencies, but rather than go into full on sad sack territory, Ackerman reigns in his voice with a vicious guitar buzz and clang. The video, which is directed by Ackerman's brother Karl, mostly features the destruction of toys by fire, there's a really obvious message there, but it's also, for some reason, pretty fun to watch army men melt while listening to heavy breakup jams.
