Portugal. The Man has just released a music video for “Atomic Man,” the new single from their forthcoming album Evil Friends. The video is captivating, featuring black and white still photo portraits of the band members strung together at high speeds so as to create the illusion of motion.
More intriguing than the video’s cinematography, however, is the fact that Danger Mouse produced the new album. The taste of Evil Friends that we get from “Atomic Man” suggests that the Mouse has brought to the table the same accessible rock production value that garnered Grammy’s for the Black Keys’ El Camino.
