Last month, Phantogram shared a new song inspired by the suicide of the lead singer Sarah Barthal’s sister. Entitled “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore,” the song served as a new single in support of the popular duo’s next studio album, Three. Today, they’re following up the song’s release with the official visual for the track. In the video above, Phantogram head out to the desert with renowned director Grant Singer to cook up the clip for “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore.” In a statement to FADER, the act had the following to say to explain the vignette:

“You Don’t Get Me High Anymore is about the loneliness in superficial relationships and that feeling of not being able to find happiness in places that were once so easy to come across. The desolation in Bombay Beach represents that feeling really well. The area was once a promising vacation spot before the droughts and now it’s a ghost town. We were excited that Grant [Singer] picked that spot, he understood the aesthetic of the song right off the bat and ran with it.”
