Divine Fits rolls into Northampton this weekend for a performance at Pearl Street, and what better way to get ready than with a spooky-ass video? The clip for “Would That Not Be Nice” is a study in close-up and shadow, with cameras that zoom in woozily on Britt Daniel and the other band members sing the song.

Britt Daniels? That guy from Spoon? Yes. As you may recall, Divine Fits is his new project with Dan Boeckner from Wolf Parade, Sam Brown from the New Bomb Turks and Alex Fischel. The band last month released their debut, “A Thing Called Divine Fits,” and their fall tour stops Friday, Oct. 19, in the Club Room at Pearl Street. Strobe Horse opens. Tickets are $18 in advance (available here) and $20 at the door for the 9 p.m. show.

Divine Fits also covered Frank Ocean’s “Lost” at a show Tuesday in Rhode Island.
