Beastmilk's Video for “The Wind Blows Through Their Skulls” is Basically Anti-Communist Propaganda

By John Hill


Beastmilk: The Wind Blows Through Their Skulls (Official music video) from Svart Records on Vimeo.

When the world is coming to a nightmarishly brutal end in front of your eyes, your options of things to do in your final moments are a little limited, especially if you're some schmuck living in an ideallic 50's suburb. Sure, you could be a giant wuss and hold your family tight, telling them how much you love them and junk. Or, you could be a real dude and go down dancing with the ship.

That's the idea behind Beastmilk's brand new video for their song “The Wind Blows Through Their Skulls.” Red scare flicks from the 50's and 60's smashed and cut together with breakfast cereal ads of the time serve as the perfect backdrop for catastrophic, surfy death rock. Watch citizens of 50's run screaming into bomb shelters, then come to a catharsis of celebration. Don't forget to catch the band on tour surfin in the EU this summer, then again in the fall with the catastrophic In Solitude and Obnoxious Youth.
