The story Kings of Leon began in their last video “Waste a Moment” continues in their latest visual “Find Me.”
Directed by Dimitri Basil, the strange events that peppered “Waste a Moment” (from random people dropping dead to a fight with a ponytailed older man) continue when an entire school disappears in “Find Me.” Local authorities race against the clock to find the mysterious older man (the same one from “Waste a Moment”) who seems to be connected to the troubling occurrence.
The video meshes together the imagery and tone of Stranger Things with Twin Peaks to achieve its antiquated, small-town feel. There’s even a scene in a luxury business office where the lights begin to flicker a la Netflix’s beloved recent series Stranger Things.
Things take a bizarre turn, though, when a news program several adults are watching across different locations leads to their deaths.
“Find Me” appears on Kings of Leon’s seventh studio album WALLS.
