IFC.com will premiere the first music video from the acclaimed Los Angeles duo The Milk Carton Kids this Monday, January 21st. The clip offers a deliberately simple yet evocative visual complement to the duo’s song “Snake Eyes” from the their upcoming Anti- Records debut The Ash & Clay, out March 26th.

The Milk Carton Kids formed in 2011 and consists of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan. While the most obvious musical reference is the classic folk revival sound of their twin acoustic guitars and close harmonies, the band both expands and contradicts that rich legacy with highly inventive guitar lines and intricately interwoven vocals.
In their short time together the duo have already attracted a devoted and sizable following with the simple purity of their music, touring with a host of established acts (Old Crow Medicine Show, Punch Brothers, and more), appearing on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series, and charming audiences with their deadpan on-stage humor.
Currently, three songs from The Ash & Clay, including "Snake Eyes", are featured prominently in the new Gus Van Sant film Promised Land.
