Watch: “Human” Killers

If there’s anything to be said about The Killers, it’s that they know how to command an image. During the band’s stint in support of Hot Fuss, they were rockers with a slight hipster edge. With 2006’s Sam’s Town, 600px killers day age 300x300 Watch: Human Killersthe band took on this decadent, glam rock look, complete with neon and Vegas-styled lighting to back them up on stage. It might be a little too early to brand them a look yet, but there’s something vaguely early 90’s pop about the Las Vegas natives lately, especially in the new video for “Human”, the first single off Day & Age, the band’s third effort, due out November 25th.

Remember Michael Jackson’s video for “Black & White”? The one that starred George Wendt and Macauley Culkin? Yeah, well, amongst all the cameos, Jackson performed in the desert amongst tribesmen and calvary. It was surreal and a bit post-modern. The same be said for “Human”, which sports a feather wearing Brandon Flowers, leading his band out in the desert, and in the company of white tigers.

Yeah, it’s a pretty snazzy video, but it suits the song.
