The Shins – “Dead Alive” Video

The Shins are back! Turns out that spooky teaser was promoting the band’s new single “Dead Alive” — their first new song since 2014 soundtrack contribution “So Now What” — which arrives today with an appropriately Halloween-y video. I am happy to report that it sounds a lot like the understated pop-rock masters I fell in love with 15 years ago — which is to say it’s less produced than the Port Of Morrow material and could almost pass for an Oh, Inverted World! outtake. Watch below.

“Dead Alive” was one of the new songs the Shins debuted in London last month. Expect their new album in 2017, just in time to secure the best Coachella placement.
