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.
