Now that’s what you call an apposite team-up.

Whether working with lurid rabble-rousers The Birthday Party or crafting doomy melodrama with The Bad Seeds, Nick Cave has spent a lifetime trading in on his talent for furious intensity. Ditto director Gaspar Noé, responsible for 2002’s gut-wrenching Irréversible and 2009’s visceral, exhausting drug fantasy Enter The Void.

A natural fit, then, on the video for the Seeds’ recent ‘We No Who U R’. It’s an unshowy clip, following a rogue shadow as it strolls through a dark forest, but it somehow manages to feel charming and sinister all at once.

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds will release new album Push The Sky Away on Febraury 18 via Bad Seed Ltd. Noé, meanwhile, can be heard lending his pipes to X-TG’s recent Desertshore project. [via The Quietus]
