Ratatat released a video this morning for a song off their upcoming new album, Magnifique. The song, entitled “Abrasive”, features video full of animated drawings done by Evan Mast (E. VAX). The animated drawings are, among other things, people dancing to the rhythm of the song.
The video has a bit of a “Take on Me” feel to it, which is never a bad thing. The animations are brought to life to dance and move in many different ways. The song itself is laced with mellow beats and a subtle backing guitar, a perfect song for relaxing and hanging out with friends during the summer.
Magnifique comes out July 17. Ratatat is heading back on tour throughout the remainder of the summer and into September. You can also listen to their first single off their first release in five years below.
