[Watch] The Shins – “It’s Only Life”

The Shins have been constantly releasing videos for their latest album, Port of Morrow; most of them have been great, and their new clip for “It’s Only Life” is no exception. The visuals about death in a figurative way work great with this introspective, heart-on-sleeve little track about life. The video features a small, imaginative boy and a dog (think Calvin and Hobbes) playing in an apocalyptic environment, while frontman James Mercer is being dragged off to a fate unknown by a dark figure. The video is lovely, but the whole thing is deceptively sad. Hiro Murai directs. Watch below.
