If you're lucky, Sunday is a time of relaxation and meditation — only to be followed by Monday, which mauls you like a hungry pack of dogs wearing suits and ties. In the hope that you survive this bloody day, we dedicate to you Delorean's new video, "Real Love."

Delorean is a Spanish alternative dance band from the Basque country whose new album Subiza is a delight: Every song is a satisfying treat. "Real Love" is no exception.

Delorean nos alucina con su nuevo trabajo, Subiza.

It's flawlessly relaxing, but also anthemic and intense. The song's gurgle-like vocals conjure images of floating in the ocean, so it's only appropriate that the new video features a bunch of hipsters smoking on a beautiful beach.

The video, however, soon takes a turn for the weird, as fierce dogs turn the relaxing hang into a horrifying bloodbath. I've read a lot of interpretations, but I'll go out on a limb and suggest that there's humor and irony in listening to such a chill tune while watching carnage. Kinda like listening to Enya while watching Saw IV on mute.

Enjoy.
