Last month, Baltimore rock group Lower Dens shared the first single “Brains” off of its upcoming LP, Nootropics, which Ribbon is set to release on May 1 in the U.S. and on April 30 worldwide. While the release date may seem far away, fans should be satisfied until then as the band has premiered the video for “Brains” and announced new tour dates leading up to Nootropics.
 
The video for “Brains” is directed by Tristan Patterson and features Lower Dens member Jana Hunter in what looks to be a television getting terrible reception. Luckily no one adjusts the antenna, though, because the distorted look fits with the song’s low-fi and surreal aesthetic.
 
Watch the video for “Brains” and see if Lower Dens will be playing in your town below.
