[Watch] Datarock - "California" (Video)

Yesterday Stereogum premiered the video for Datarock's latest single "California", which is now available on their imprint Young Aspiring Professionals. Maybe it's because they're from Norway, but I don't remember California being that joyous back when I visited Rocko 2 years ago. I guess all the botox and health food in LA can make it seem this awesome, but I guess I'm just biased because I live in the best city in the world.

Make sure you grab "California" over on iTunes.
