The video for “Drunktalk,” the latest single from the Swedish group Billy Momo, is loosely based on reality. The members of the band worked at a bar in Sweden, and the song’s lyrics are culled from that experience. About a minute and a half in, however, the video pursues a decidedly surreal path. The band’s spirits leave their bodies and stumble around drunkenly, materializing in odd, empty hallways and waving their hands in the air. It suits the song’s haunting mood: the vocals are layered dreamily, and the whole thing howls like the winter wind through barren tree branches.
