We first shared this track from Totem, "See-Saw Girl", in the middle of last month, and though it's been a few weeks since it came out, it still gets stuck in our heads. There is now a visual component to the track, a black-and-white dream-like video that shows a girl being chased and harrassed by mysterious, crystal ball-wielding thugs. The whole video is like something we've seen in our dreams—that anxious, pounding feeling you get when something bad is about to happen, but it's not actually real. The perfect complement to a song that works wonders in its building to noodly madness.
Totem's first singles come out through Moshi Moshi on September 23. You can pick this and its b-side up here, and if you're abroad, you can see the band play at these dates in London:
19 – The Lexington
26 – Total Refreshment Centre
