Today, Moose Blood premieres their new music video for “Can We Stay Like This” taken from the band’s new album I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore, out now via Hopeless Records. Fans can check out the music video, directed by Tyler Zelinsky, below.

“‘Can We Stay Like This’ is a song Eddy wrote for his wife whilst in LA, during the recording session for the album. The video has a darker tone than anything we’ve done before,” the band said of the track. “It’s a mood we’ve been trying to achieve from a video for a while now, and we’re really happy with the way it all came together.”

Speaking to the tone of the video, director Zelinsky said, “I loved working with Moose Blood on this one. They had this great idea for an image of love lost that served as the jumping off point for the video. We open on a couple on the run á la True Romance, although in this telling they’ve met their demise. That image really plays contrary to what the song is actually about-wanting to stay in a perfect moment with the one you love.”

The video captures a contradiction in staying in a perfect moment with the dark opening sequence, according to Zelinsky.

The video is about getting back to that place as described in the song and the desire to undo that which can’t be undone. There’s a perfect moment for this couple that’s the polar opposite of where we find them and it’s impossible to get there because time only runs in one direction-although not in film,” he continued. “That’s the magic of the video, taking them back to that moment. By playing out the action in reverse time, the lyrics aren’t ironic to the images anymore and can actually be taken quite literally. They’re being brought back to life as the song asks “Can we stay like this?

I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore is available on SpotifyApple Music, and iTunes. Moose Blood recently wrapped up a North American headline tour with Lydia and McCafferty, and is slated to play a number of dates across Europe and Australia this summer, including Slam Dunk Festival in the UK and Greenfield Festival in Switzerland.
