Exclusive: The Pinker Tones’ ‘Working Bees’ Video Premiere
Barcelona-based electro-pop duo's labors pay off in trippy, honeycomb-world video treatment for the groovy, compu-funk track off new album, Wild Animals.
Pinker Tones masterminds Mister Furia and Professor Manso returned June 3 with their latest U.S. release, Wild Animals, and in the new video being premiered right here on SPIN.com — for the album’s glitch-and-groove banger “Working Bees,” the duo do just that: transform into untamed honey bees and get busy “making honey for your ears.”
In the clip, as lounge-style blips and bleeps collide against Daft Punk-like, face-rattling pulsations, a pair of bees — assumingly bug-eyed, insect avatars of Mister Furia and Professor Manso — peer out the tube-like honeycombs, tracking the real Pinker Tones’ global travails from Sydney to Hollywood. Wild indeed but not nearly as feral as the dance party this bangin’ track will surely ignite the world across.
