Ratatat Go Anti-‘Abrasive’ on Harmonious New Track

Its accompanying video was hand-animated by band member E.VAX

Next month, instrumental electro-rock producers Ratatat return with Magnifique, their first album in five years, and now they’ve shared a new song — and bare-bones music video — called “Abrasive.” It’s anything but what the title suggests, full of uptempo harmonizing, a synthesizer buried deep underneath lolling guitar licks, and a grandiose guitar solo that sounds like it came right from the poppiest corner of Julian Casablancas’ mind. Pick up Magnifique on July 17.
