LOOK: STRFKR Announce New LP, ‘Miracle Mile’; Extensive U.S. Spring Tour To Follow
By Staff on December 5, 2012
Portland electronica four-piece, STRFKR, have made some exceptionally vivid videos to accompany their already high-energy tunes—evident within the video for popular anthem, "Bury Us Alive," off 2011 LP, Reptilians.
Now, these dance gods have showered us with a follow-up album that looks just as promising—Miracle Mile—which will hit the streets on February 19 via Polyvinyl Records. Feel free to pre-order the new album now though.
Streaming below is the epic album opener, "While I'm Alive," which is one of those rare tracks in which a future music video might actually be unnecessary; the song scarily has a life of its own, due to carefree, groovy basslines, colorful synth and the proactive lyrics of the catchy chorus, "while I'm alive, I live my life."
Let the electronica spirits enter your body and choreograph the rest of your day. Worry about the exorcism later.
