It's hard to say if Joshua Evans knew that his solo ambient project, Muuy Biien, was destined to catch rabies and transform into Athens, Ga.'s most sinister, unpredictable rock band — but six years in, the infection (or inoculation) is perfectly ingrained into their musical DNA. Last October's Age of Uncertainty is less an album than a barefoot jog through the gloomiest of post-punk fever swamps, riddled with snapping alligators and broken glass — and yet, we keep coming back.

Muuy Biien's new video for "Moral Compass" poses a similar question, but the framing is way more gothic and grotesque — and maybe a little bit romantic. Directed by Benjamin Roberds, the visual puts the viewer in the shoes of a soon-to-be-husband heading off to marry his future wife: Evans, au Nosferatu-ale, in a gown and makeup. All goes well (and weird), until an unexpected guest strikes just after the first kiss. Was it the bride's con? A suicide attempt? Aliens? I'll leave you to decide. Watch below.

Muuy Biien released their Age of Uncertainty LP on Autumn Tone last October.
