Portrait of Royksopp from September 2006.

The release of Royksopp's latest album, The Inevitable End, was bittersweet: the duo Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland announced that it would be their final work together. But they haven't called it quits yet -- Monday (Dec. 1) they put out the video for "Skulls."

"Skulls" is the first song on The Inevitable End. It's an ominous track with a Vocoder lyric -- all build, no release. Fittingly, the video is shot in stark black and white, full of darkness and shadows.

A group of men and women drive to an old cabin, where they end up having a strobe-heavy dance party. At the end, the song drops away and the video glitches and stutters like a horror movie trailer.
