Published Jun 16, 2015Experimental electro-rock duo Ratatat are ready to return with their new album Magnifique this summer, and to add to the anticipation, they've unveiled a new video for the latest single, "Abrasive."
A press release describes the song as one of the "densest" tunes the two-piece have ever made, featuring as many as 30 layered guitar tracks at once. The video is equally intricate, featuring more than 4,000 hand-drawn illustrations by Ratatat's own E. Vax. The black-and-white clip features an array of characters from track and field stars to businessmen letting loose and getting their groove on.
Magnifique is officially out on July 17 via XL Recordings, and you can see Ratatat's recently expanded list of upcoming tour dates over here. Watch the video for "Abrasive" below.
