To kick off the their debut album, Psychic Reader, which comes out today via Afternoon Records, Minneapolis-based indie rock trio Bad Bad Hats just released their video for the album's opening track, "Midway." In the trippy video, the group plays in darkness while their figures are distorted through a kaleidoscopic filter and lead singer Kerry Alexander gazes into the camera, her face stained with mascara-run tears. The track's meshing of dreamy synth beats, distorted guitar, and Alexander's serene croon bouncing over hand claps make it the perfect, dreamy-pop summer soundtrack. This is the kind of music to listen to on a roof, under the sun with a fizzy drink. Make it a Bad Bad Hats summer and then catch them on tour with Mynabirds at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 25.
