The Eels Lockdown Hurricane
Eels have always been a frank, open, emotional experience.
Yet new album 'The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett ' takes this further than ever before. With Everett delving into his personal life, it matches pained, melancholic lyrics against a pastoral sweep.
'Lockdown Hurricane' is a highlight, featuring one of Everett's most sensitive vocal performances. Now the track has gained a full video (above), shot in the American desert.
Essentially a Bonnie and Clyde style love story, don't go expecting either the video (or indeed the album) to end happily... source
