Forest Swords‘ second album Engravings has proven to be just as rewarding as its entrancing predecessor, and now lead single ‘Thor’s Stone’ has received a very fitting visual accompaniment.

Directed by Dave Ma, the video accompanies Matthew Barnes’ spooky soundtrack with footage of dancer Guzman Rosado writhing in the streets of industrial Los Angeles. Ma said of the shoot “I made him dance repeatedly for about eight hours through the night, there was no one for miles around, just Forest Swords echoing out of a boom box.”

Barnes has also revealed a number of shows that will find him traipsing through the U.K. and Europe, you can take a look below.
