Les Savy Fav Share New Single ‘World Got Great’

    Les Savy Fan have released ‘World Got Great’, the latest offering from OUI, LSF, the band’s first album in 14 years. It follows previous cuts ‘Legendary Tippers’, Guzzle Blood’, and ‘Limo Scene’. Check out its animated music video, directed by Jimbo Matison, below.

    “Everything is so computer generated now, nothing seems sincere,” Matison reflected in a statement. “I wanted raw materials and simple ideas to do the talking. We also wanted to have a good time while making this, so why not get back to 1st grader basics? Can we make a video with cardboard, crayons, and a phone? Hell yeah, we can.”

    “Did we buy a $4.99 bubble machine at the dollar store? Yeah, it lasted for about 30 minutes which was just enough time to shoot what was needed. That thing pumped mad bubbles while it worked,” he continued. “Can you see cat hair on the closeups? Absolutely. We are a little embarrassed by that, but hey, Skipper is a rad cat and we love him. The finale may look familiar as Fruity Pebbles were used as the colour scheme. It’s a vibrant coloured cardboard explosion. Does this video look ‘out of the box’? No. Is it boring? No. Mission accomplished.”

    Oui, LSF is due out May 10 via Frenchkiss/The Orchard.
