The music video for the first single of indie band Two Door Cinema Club’s album Beacon, Sleep Alone, has just squirreled online ahead of the album’s September 3 release. In it, the frontman gets confronted by a hoodie that comes to life, then by a walking seat cushion straight out of Disney; gets assaulted by a blanket, then does some modern day Aladdin-ing surfing on a bed as he crashes out of his high-rise apartment, pursued by a train and then a guitar. Oh, and there’re also a couple of alien invasion scenes. Looks quite fun. Can we be in the band?
