Beach Fossils – “Dare Me” [Video]

| |

Beach Fossils present “Dare Me,” the new single/video from their forthcoming album, Bunny, out June 2nd on Bayonet. Following lead single “Don’t Fade Away,” “Dare Me” broadens Beach Fossils’ palette of irresistible tracks. Beach Fossils have steadily earned their stature as one of the most definitive and enduring bands of the last decade which is showcased in the songwriting prowess on full display here. “Went to a party // Had to break up the fight // Then we took off // ‘Cause it fucked up our night,” frontman Dustin Payseur sings in an ever-cool intonation. The accompanying music video, directed by Kevin Clark, fittingly depicts a raucous late-night house party.

“‘Dare Me’ is a song about conflict, friendship and the intoxication of new love,” says Payseur. “Willing to let yourself be stupid, vulnerable, pissed off and forgiving.”

You can order the album HERE.
