This Shins have partnered with Pitchfork on the video for "It's Only Life" from their acclaimed Port of Morrow (Aural Apothecary/Columbia) and can be viewed below:

The Hiro Murai (St. Vincent, Scissor Sisters, Friends) directed video features James Mercer captured by the creature which ominously lurks within the Port Of Morrow cover art designed by Jacob Escobedo. Shot in Portland, OR the video provides a peek of an abandoned suburban landscape overrun by these mysterious creatures.
