Editors – Formaldehyde
UK alternative rock band Editors enlisted Ben Wheatley to direct the music video for Formaldehyde, the latest single from their fourth studio album The Weight of Your Love, released on June 28, 2013.
The largely slow-mo video was shot in Almeria, Spain in the same sets that were used for Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West. It starts off with what appears to be a standard western setting, before some dudes in scary masks show up and the whole thing tips into the surreal by the finale.
Formaldehyde is the second single from The Weight of Your Love and it marks Ben Wheatley’s debut at directing music videos.
