Like in the middle of desert

The Vaccines have unveiled a new semi-dystopic video titled “Alone Star,” shot by Mexican director Santiago Arriaga. The video finds a couple visiting a weird motel in the middle of nowhere where we get to see them find an unexpected neon light of hope. Press play:  

The band’s Justin Young says of the new video and its place in the utopic/dystopic Back In Love City: “We wanted the ‘Alone Star’ video to be one of hope, capturing the moment when you realise all is not lost. Anyone that has driven through the desert to Las Vegas will know about the roadside casinos that start popping up and lighting the freeways as you arrive into Nevada. This motel is exactly the same sort of institution, existing in the shadows of Love City where feelings of all kinds can be found if you look hard enough. Mexico is one of our favourite places in the world and an intensely characterful place, literally metres away from where we recorded this song, so it felt like the perfect location for our protagonists to find what they were looking for…”
