New Manchester Orchestra, "The Only One"

Manchester Orchestra's new album, Mean Everything To Nothing, is scheduled to be released on  April 21st, and the first bits of new material are just starting to surface across the interweb.  Yesterday, the brand new video for the album's first single, "The Only One", was posted on the band's official YouTube channel.  It sets the story of a woman escaping a mental hospital, to a backdrop of grainy, old, home video-style footage, and includes captions in assorted retro typefaces.  It's an interesting concept that goes strikingly well with the band's new sound, which is much more raw than what we heard on I'm Like A Virgin Losing A Child.  At times, it even sound sounds like a modern Neutral Milk Hotel.  If the rest of the album is anything like this, I think we're in for a real treat.  Check it out below.
