Minnesota indie vets Low released their outstanding new album Double Negative last month. Today, in honor of Halloween, the trio have shared a slightly eerie video for Double Negative brooder “Always Trying To Work It Out.” The clip, directed by Philip Harder and Low’s Alan Sparhawk, sees Sparhawk navigate a grocery store filled with people wearing the same bizarre mask.

In a statement on the video, the band says: “We present our slightly Halloween-themed video for 'Always Trying to Work It Out.' In which… friends and family star in a stroll through the grocery store; familiar fragments from memory appear; masks are filtering light. Thank you National Sawdust, light tech Shane Donohue, and the Food Co-op in Duluth. It’s dedicated to our city of Duluth.”

Double Negative is Low’s twelfth studio album and follows 2015’s Ones and Sixes. Below, watch the video for “Always Trying To Work It Out” as well as Low’s 2012 performance on KEXP from the Bumbershoot Music Lounge.
