Vial of Sound Pictures "The Day We Both Died" in New Music Video

Trevvor Riley is presumably a very busy guy. Not very long ago at all, we were talking about Emby Alexander's new single, "Drag the Long Way Home," its Riley-directed video and the caveworms therein.

Earlier this month, Vial of Sound got its own precision-creepy treatment, for "The Day We Both Died." It's a fitting one, too: Analog imperfections begin to intrude on the band's vintage-synth reality, with weird static and moiring effects obscuring the story of a running girl, her hands covered in not-exactly-blood.

As Vimeo uploads go, it is remarkably likely to make you reach for a tracking dial that isn't there. Watch it after the jump:
