Low – “Try To Sleep” Music Video

I enjoy this video to no end, and it alone puts Low up 20,000 points in my book.

For starters, IT HAS JOHN STAMOS!!!!!!, looking as fine as ever. The video itself is a throw-back to the days of black and white pictures. A romantic scene takes place between a couple as they’re driving in a classic car, a detached background rolling behind them the entire way. All the while, the song beckons listeners to “Try To Sleep” in an eerie way, like a mantra to be found in all the spaces between life and sleep, as well as between sleep and death. And yeah, the video takes it there, too (to death).

Directed by Travis Schneider.
