Alcohol drinkers beware: I See Stars’ music video for “Murder Mitten” will sober you up (see video below). The Michigan boys never fail to deliver intense and engaging music videos, and this one is no exception. They incorporate messages with these videos instead of focusing on flashy and ostentatious aesthetics, which I give them much respect for.
When I saw I See Stars on Halloween, Devin introduced “Murder Mitten” with a little bit of a personal background about him and Andrew Oliver’s mother being an alcoholic. “Murder Mitten” focuses on the repercussions of their mother’s addiction by the interweaving of home video footage of them as kids and camera cuts of their mother drinking and losing sight of what’s important. It’s an emotionally driven video that will leave you struck by the end. Everything happens so fast that you barely have time to process everything. Essentially, the video puts your life into perspective for a moment because at the end of the video, after witnessing an intense rush of emotion, Devin and Andrew leave a post-script message that inspires hope for everything we do, which is a nice ending sentiment.
