Last month, Garbage introduced their new song, “No Horses,” during their Rage And Rapture tour with Blondie. Frontwoman Shirley Manson describes the song as depressing and their darkest yet – quite a feat considering their intense discography. “No Horses” takes us to a dystopian, apocalyptic future, a place it can seem we’re headed towards already.
Today, “No Horses” gets a stunning new music video, directed by Scott Stuckey. Shirley Manson, dressed in white lace with and a red cloak, lingers in an eerie room with her three bare-footed bandmates. She stalks and writhes, seemingly envisioning the future, while the men restrain her. Meanwhile, the video is interspersed with shots of today’s landscape. Footage of protests and riots, shoppers in malls, polluted cities, and giant landfills of trash are contrasted with beautiful horses galloping through water. Our political and social climate will determine which future we meet.
Watch the video for “No Horses” below:
Garbage is still touring North America with Blondie. Check out all remaining dates and get tickets before it’s too late! The tour ends on August 14th in Ciudad de Mexico.
Garbage released their last album, Strange Little Birds, one year ago. It gave us singles “Empty” and “Magnetized.” Since then, the band has released a cover of Cat Stevens’s “Where Do The Children Play?” and Shirley recorded vocals for two new American Gods songs. You can hear “Queen Of The Bored” now. Garbage has been working on at least four other songs in addition to “No Horses,” and with any luck, we may get a new album from them next year.
The band also just released an incredible biography. Be sure to pick up their book, This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake.
You can buy “No Horses” on iTunes or stream the song on Spotify now. All profits from sales and streaming of this song will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross through the end of 2018.
