Out today is the new single from German brothers Matthias and Michael Rückert, aka LionLion, called What Remains. It’s taken from their upcoming album Perpective, and we’re delighted to be able to premiere the accompanying video right here on Backseat Mafia today.

The track skirts around the edges of wonky / prog pop, with a touch of psychedelia here and a nod towards krautrock there. Although the track is filled with Lucy in the sky with diamonds references and keyboard sounds, but they are very much their own men and it has the sort of brilliantly catchy melodies and soaring guitar solos that live long in the memory.

The accompanying psychedelic video sees the brothers go against the laws of nature in a time-bending quest to reunite the characters of their gripping video. Shot in the modernist-industrial Eiermannbau, the location is the perfectly surreal backdrop to the message of the single the pursuit of plausibility and knowledge.
