Of Monsters and Men is returning with its sophomore album, Beneath the Skin, in June and already with its first single "Crystals" we to know to expect a bit darker-leaning folk anthems from the Icelandic quintet this time around. Now the band is thoroughly reinforcing that with a new video for that track, delivering a fitting aesthetic that boarders on steampunk and witchcraft.

In the new clip, filmed in Iceland by directors Arni and Kinski, the band together plays a Dr. Frankenstein of sorts, with each member pitching in to operate an elaborate machine, mixing strange looking goos with feathers, stones, flowers and more. 

"Cover your crystal eyes/And let your colors and blend with mine," the group chants in the chorus.
