Strange Things Are Happening In Kings Of Leon's 'Waste A Moment' Vid & MTV Wants To Know Why
Who are the cheerleaders and more importantly WHAT DO THEY WANT?
YASSS Kings Of Leon are back and off to a blazing start with brand new music and an awesome, and awesomely weird, music video for their new single 'Waste A Moment'.
Directed by Dimitri Basil, the stylised video is set in small town America and immediately sent shivers down our spines with its It Follows/Twin Peaks-y vibes.
Featuring cheerleaders 'coincidentally' around when policemen mysteriously collapse in the park or when there's a knife-wielding, home invasion stand-off happening, something fishy's definitely going on in this here town.
Is this going to be a continuous story for more KOL videos? Who do you think they are? SO MANY QUESTIONS.
We're going with aliens because who doesn't like an other-wordly narrative and it's less scary than imagining just plain psychopath cheerleaders. Also there was a spaceship-like spotlight in the final frame and we've eaten too much cake today to think beyond the literal.
In short, more please.
'Waste A Moment' is the first single to be lifted from their forthcoming WALLS out on 14th October.
