Salem drops new EP, co-ops Gisele Bündchen for terrifying video

November 15, 2011 |  1:07 pm


Have you ever watched some rabid paparazzi clips on TMZ and thought, "Hmm, this just isn't creepy enough for my taste in surreptitious video footage"? The Michigan goth-synth trio Salem understands. In light of its new EP, "I'm Still in the Night," set for release Nov. 22 on the local indie IAMSOUND, the band directed a video for its codeine-addled cover of Alice Deejay's "Better Off Alone" that pretty much consists of found footage of supermodel Gisele Bündchen trying to get into a car while photographers snap shots. You'll probably be too terrified to ever touch Instagram after seeing it. And Gisele might never leave the house again.
