Modest Mouse’s New Video Features An Adorable Coyote


a howl

You know when people say ‘you got me at… this line’. Well, every time there is a cute animal, you get me, isn’t it the case for you? Modest Mouse have released a video for their new song ‘Coyotes’ off their upcoming and sixth album, ‘Strangers to Ourselves’, and it features a really cool coyote riding an empty train by himself to arrive in the middle of the city. According to Stereogum and Interstate 8, ‘the video is inspired by the true story of a coyote that rode Portland’s MAX light rail train in 2002,’ and the same incident that inspired Sleater-Kinney’s ‘Light Rail Coyote’,… but of course the song is a bit punchier and rowdier than this one.

Modest Mouse’s song is a bright ballad with melancholic vocals tip toeing (just like this coyote) through gentle plucked guitars and full orchestration, brushed by harmonies soaring in cycles. The video couldn’t be more simple and this cute coyote seems so lost and adventurous at the same time, you can tell when looking at his eyes when he is sleeping on the train seat,… he is going for the big ride without knowing what he is doing. If it really happened, I wonder what happened to him! I see coyotes in my neighborhood all the time they actually come very close to houses and I always worry about them, they look so much like dogs!

‘Strangers to Ourselves’ will be out on March 3rd via Epic but you can get ‘Coyotes’ now, when you pre-order the album on iTunes. Also, if you are into vinyl, you will receive a complimentary copy of the limited ‘Lampshades On Fire’ / ‘Coyotes’ 7″ if you are one of the first 2,500 to pre-order the new LP from

But look at this face, these eyes, he is beautiful, don’t you want to cuddle with him?
