Khruangbin have revealed their new video for 'Dearest Alfred' today, and it's a celebration of the lost art of writing letters to loved ones.

Though it likely refers to letters penned by someone close to her in a previous life, it has a more prescient meaning given the lack of human connection we're all in dire need of at present.
Take a look at the video below:
