Video: Deftones – Swerve City
Saddle up for Deftones’ brand new Wild West-inspired clip.
Swerve City is the latest track taken off Deftones’ most recent studio album Koi No Yokan.
The video, directed by Gus Black, depicts a mysterious woman on horseback riding alone through the desert. She eventually arrives at an isolated cabin to await the arrival of Deftones frontman Chino Moreno – and greet him with a surprise gift…
The atmospheric clip is clearly inspired by the song’s lyrics: “She breaks her horses/With strange distant voices/That travel through the air…”
Moreno is aiming to settle Deftones’ inner turmoil with Koi No Yokan, as they continue life without bassist Chi Cheng, who died last month at age 42. He’d been in a semi-comatose state since a traffic accident in 2008.
Moreno said: “We were coming out of a tough time, obviously. Our goal was to kind of rebuild what we created over the years. I felt like we had to prove ourselves.”
