‘We Want War’ by These New Puritans

These New Puritans, who’s first album Beat Pyramid was one of my faves of 2008, is coming out with a new album in January called Hidden and I can’t wait. The video above is for their first single We Want War and features several lithe, young men and women running and jumping into water, all in slow motion. The images are really beautiful as the footage must have been shot with a really fast camera. The phrase moving photos comes to mind.

The song is a bit slow, I like the frantic feeling of the first album a bit more. I love the full orchestra sound to the end of the song though, nothing like throwing some woodwind instruments in there. Nonetheless it’s not a bad song and I’m definitely interested in hearing more of this album.
