Brit pop mainstays Blur refuse to slow down. With seven records under their belt over their 27-year history, the band that personifies ’90s London is set to release their eighth record The Magic Whip on 27 April 2015. The lead single “Lonesome Street” sees Damon Albarn and his bandmates in top form. There are novel elements of funk, but this is largely the Blur of the ’90s: guitar-driven upbeat rock that is distinctly British. For the video, director Ben Reed tapped the Phoenix Fly Line Dancing Group of San Francisco making for an unexpected but endearing juxtaposition between indie rock and Chinese folk dancing.
