The Killers frontman adapts classic American lit in "Can't Deny My Love".
If there's one way we would describe Brandon Flowers' latest video, it's "indie-Mormon"; as pegged by our editor.
Travelling back to Puritan America, the new video from The Killers' frontman has been recognised as a direct adaptation of classic short story Young Goodman Brown. Brandon leaves his young wife (played by Evan Rachel Wood) to go off on a mysterious errand in the woods, meeting an old robed man with a staff. What could it all mean?
The track itself is a blasting contrast from the video; an awesome 80s synth-pop style jam that wouldn't sound out of place on a HAIM album. It makes for an oddly excellent matchup with the video content; "indie-Mormon", right?
