Lower Dens takes us on a spiritual saga of cowboy krautrock in their new video “Hand of God.” Taken from their latest record The Competition, which was released at the end of 2019, the video is a mind-stretching narrative of conquering the almighty. Enjoy:

“It’s like Cowboy Krautrock. Imagine a wild west adventure, like ‘City Slickers,’ with the star, a wealthy white man. He’s devised a way to conquer God. He has some kind of vaguely dangerous journey, then comes upon God and declares victory. In his hubris, he goes to shake God’s hand, at which time he is psychedelically humbled, his little brain imploding.”
