Destroyer Destroy Some Chickens In ‘Bye Bye’ Video

Destroyer are gearing up to release ‘Five Spanish Songs’, an EP featuring, well, five Spanish songs. The tunes — all written by Antonio Luque of the band Sr. Chinarro — include ‘El Rito’, which you can stream on Soundcloud, and ‘Bye Bye,’ which has a brand-new video (above).

But don’t get too caught up in the wistful melodies, peaceful strumming of the guitar and happy-looking chickens surrounding singer Dan Bejar. The ending of the video will make you either laugh or cringe, and we’re certain Moz would not approve.

“It was 2013,” Bejar writes of the new EP. “The English language seemed spent, despicable, not easily singable. It felt over for English; good for business transactions, but that’s about it. The only other language I know is Spanish, and the only Spanish songs I really know are those of Sr. Chinarro, led by Antonio Luque. I’ve been a decades-long fan of how he conducted his affairs, his strange words, his melodies that have always felt so natural (this is important), his bitter songs about painting the light. Something about them, I knew I could do it…”

‘Five Spanish Songs’ is set for release on Nov. 25 via Merge. Click here to pre-order.
