Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and his wife, Mariqueen Maandig (former vocalist for West Indian Girl), will be releasing their first 6 song EP on June 1 as the newly formed group, How to Destroy Angels. Frequent NIN collaborator Atticus Ross also joins the group whose new video for the track The Space in Between was directed by Rupert Sanders. The video is like a three minute clip from a horror film which is exactly the reason why I'm sharing it with you today.
While the video doesn't feature guts and gore galore, I'd say watching a bloody corpse sing and then burn in an all-consuming fire is still pretty unsettling. It's also strange to see Trent Reznor -- who usually has center stage -- lying dead on the floor. The video feels like a cross between a gritty horror film and a David Lynch flick. The whole scene is beautifully shot by Sanders who made a name for himself in the advertising world -- directing commercials for Nike and the Wolverine videogame.
You can watch the eerie video after the jump. When Mariqueen sings, "All our blood lying on the floor ... " she really means it. Download the free EP off the band's website over here.
