[Watch] Lower Dens - "Brains" (Official Video)

Baltimore new wave outfit Lower Dens are set to release their sophomore album Nootropics on May 1st via Ribbon Music, and today they've let loose the official video for the album's first single "Brains." The video, directed by Tristan Patterson, is simple in its execution yet all the more enticing because of it. Check it out above, via The NJ Underground.

"Brains" is set for release as a 10" single on March 27th, which will include the song "Propagation" and b-side "Hours." As well, Lower Dens will go on tour starting February 29th, so give their tour itinerary a look after the jump.
