Two-thirds Swedish, one-third New Yorker band Miike Snow's "Burial" begins just like that part of the theme song to The Hills where she's like "Staring at the blank page before you" blah blah blah, and then it thankfully quickly transitions into something far more interesting and soothing. The video for the song begins just like that part in Slumdog Millionaire where people are chilling and everything looks golden, and then it thankfully quickly transitions into something a little more interesting and unpredictable. It was directed by Swedes Daniel Wirtberg & Jonas Rudström. Watch it after the jump and download the song below. If you like it, Miike Snow's album is available now on Downtown Records.
