Of Monsters and Men Go Romeo and Juliet in “Empire” video

Of Monsters and Men have dropped the video for their single Empire, which comes off their new album Beneath the Skin and features models Erika Linder and Ingmari Lamy. The clip was directed by Tabitha Denholm (who has previously worked with the likes of Florence and the Machine and Haim) who said about the video “We see the same fanciful ideas of women’s sexuality again and again in music videos which I find it hard to relate to. So when Of Monsters and Men said they wanted to make a video about a forbidden relationship I was excited! I want to make music videos with stories about women that we don’t usually see”.
