Scuzzy Portland trio the Thermals make working out look deceptively fun in a new video for their single,The Sunset, off their most recent release, Desperate Ground. An ode to some of the most famous boxing movies (Rocky and Raging Bull), the clip follows bassist Kathy Foster as she preps for a big fight by chasing a chicken, doing an insane amount of sit-ups, and of course, some funky dancing.
 
Just when you think Foster is down for the count, she rises, phoenix-style, and defeats her opponent while Hutch Harris chants on about how he refuses to let the sunset pass him by again. The band is currently on tour in North America. You can check out the tour dates, and the marvelous video forThe Sunset, below. Just try not to sweat on your keyboard.
