Phantogram's new video for their song “Funeral Pyre” which follows various people in Los Angeles from the view out of a car window. In a statement, Minucci describes it as “a phantom drive in a land of nowhere, where love meets grief, loneliness, violence and desperation.” He continues, “It’s a tragic, Pynchonian elegy, of a world destined to a destroying, but perhaps purifying, fire. A descent to hell, the swan song of a city that celebrates its funeral pyre.”
