In conjunction with the release of its latest album Nootropics, released today on Ribbon Music, Baltimore rock group Lower Dens has released the video for the stand-out track “Propagation.” The video showcases a more sprawling side of the band, visually and musically, as opposed to its previous video for the sleek and pulsing “Brains.”
 
Directed by Sebastian Mlynarksi, “Propagation” takes place in a dark forest where a group of people with glow-in-the-dark jumpsuits and powdered faces prance around. They observe mysterious orbs and lick trees, among other things.
 
Lower Dens will play release week shows and have also announced a headlining North American summer tour. Check out the video for “Propagation,” above, and take a look at those tour dates, below.
