The Shins "Bait and Switch" (video)

The Shins 'Bait and Switch' (video)
The Shins are once again promoting their upcoming Port of Morrow in advance of its March 20 release on Columbia/Aural Apothecary. This time, James Mercer are doing it in a more traditional manner than with a Funny or Die sketch; instead, they've filmed a music video for "Bait and Switch."

The song is a perky, guitar-driven pop rock tune that offers pretty much what you'd expect from any Shins track: a pleasant pop melody, densely lyrical poetry, and some ball-shrinkingly high vocals. As for the video, it's a straight-laced affair that shows the band performing in a gorgeous rehearsal space that appears to be a wooden cabin in the woods near Portland, OR.
