The Shins teased new material with an offbeat trailer titled “I Gleek on Your Grave” earlier this week. The band delivered the goods Wednesday with a video for the song “Dead Alive.”
It’s a whole lot of bizarre imagery and frontman James Mercer napping and interacting with miniatures. In other words, it’s great. The Shins recently promised a new album would be coming early 2017, and if “Dead Alive” is any indication, the long wait since 2012’s Port of Morrow will be worth it.
James Mercer and co premiered a couple of their new songs at a UK show a few weeks back. Check here to see the fan shot footage.
