Three Scots walk into a bar...

Scottish Indie-rock heroes Biffy Clyro get a little bit Kubrickian in the video for Howl. Marc Klasfeld oversees this hyper-surreal clip in which the band appear to have stumbled into some other-world burlesque bar (complete with a David Lynch-esque mirror of themselves playing onstage).

The video is rife with references to The Shining, but with a dark and sexy twist. We look on in horror and amusement as Biffy take part in some maddening metamorphosis and become characters in the world they've stumbled into.
