WATCH: TEEN Don Sheer Jumpsuits and Suck Twisty Straws in New “Electric” Video

July's been a busy month for TEEN. Earlier this month the New York City quartet signed with British label, Carpark Records, and now the group has released a new video for “Electric,” the single from the upcoming full-length, In Limbo, which is due August 28.

The video, which is directed by Megha Barnabas and Sam Fleishner, begins with the band being forced by bodiless, white-gloved hands to wear and drink through twisty straw eyeglasses before taking an even stranger turn towards what can only be described as a cross between a Twin Peaks dream sequence and a Shangri-Las fitness video. Throughout the video, bandleader Teeny Lieberson looks on unaffected and unamused as she sings in her sweet, casual croon. Be sure to check out the video, but don't be surprised if you're confused by the end of it.

 

But apparently, July isn't big enough for TEEN's plans because the group has just announced plans to start touring from the end of August through October. Take a look at their schedule below, and if you're still coherent after that video, go ahead and buy yourself a ticket to one of those dates!
