LA born and bred duo Girlpool have shared the final sneak peek from their second album Powerplant with the video for the title track.

Depicting members Cleo and Harmony as the live band in a bowling alley, the camera pans to take us into the separate worlds of fellow attendees before the idyllic bubble is harshly popped by the shallow and overbearing director. Insisting for them to “put smiles on (their) faces” and exclaiming that “it’s just rock ‘n roll!”, he serves as the last kind of person you would ever want tampering with your creative vision.

Video director, Philip Steiger says the “music video is a meta-narrative nightmare exploring the power dynamics and manipulation behind an insincere candidness.”

Watch the video for “Powerplant” and look out for the album on May 12 via Anti Records.
