Kings Of Leon Release 'Waste a Moment' Video

(Radio.com) Kings of Leon released the music video for their newest single "Waste a Moment." The song comes from the band's forthcoming album Walls, which will be released on October 14th.

The video seems to combine the experimentation of earlier cinema forms, like French New Wave, with the self-conscious aesthetic so many contemporary films now exhibit. It's striking shot after striking shot, but assembled into a linear narrative it makes little sense.

Although there seems to be some kind of story, the way it's been edited together feels as though someone took a feature length film, randomly cut out three minutes and then edited that together for audiences to understand without seeing the other 87 minutes.

Let's break it down: A group of three cheerleaders open the video. They sit in a field while one watches two cops drop dead. From there, Caleb Followill gets into a standoff with an older man, and he and Jared Followill later end up blindfolded.

The cheerleaders reappear later on, also blindfolded. In fact, the metaphor of eyesight becomes a strong one between the blindfolds and later shots of a hand holding an eyeball. Watch the video here.
