Watch Lantern's creepy / surreal music video for "King of the Jungle" - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

There a lot of mood-unsettling surrealism in the new music video for Lantern‘s “King of the Jungle”, which premiered today over at The chugging anthem, at face value, is a bluesy and aggressive celebration of masculinity – but read between the lines, and it’s totally tongue-in-cheek sarcasm, something this video (directed by Jacqueline Lehance) underscores.

Our “king” is a pot-bellied dude who wakes up on his couch, surrounded by detritus of drinking alone at home, and embarks on a quest for more beer through a sprawling urban wasteland – and his journey turns undeniably creepy the further along he gets. Meanwhile, Lantern front-duo Zachary Devereux Fairbrother and Emily Robb act as a sort of Greek chorus, narrating our anti-hero’s plight while mocking him at the same time. Watch it below, and check out more from Lantern’s awesome new Rock ‘N’ Roll Rorschachhere.
