JOHN MAUS - Head For The Country VIDEO

‘Head For The Country’ is the pivotal track from John Maus' eagerly anticipated third album 'We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves' released next Monday on Upset The Rhythm.

‘Head For The Country’ was one of the last songs to make the album and with its elegiac disco bounce it leaves a lasting impression. The song meditates on human beings seeking salvation in the great outdoors, and its central call of ‘Somewhere there’s a crime being committed’ seeps deep into your conscience. This sense of wanting to reach out and find meaning is captured perfectly by Jennifer Juniper Stratford’s great new video for the song that sees John heading out into snowy Minnesotan edgelands, driving to a mysterious radar base and communicating with space via flashing auras and spinning satellites. This is the second video for John that JJ Stratford (Telefantasy Studios) has directed, the first being for ‘Believer’, it’s also worth noting that JJ is also the mastermind behind the impressive Multinauts sci-fi saga too.
