Crystal Castles have released the music video for a new song entitled “Concrete”, and it’s a real tribute to the sweat and the glory and the general mania that is festival season.

The video features new member Edith Frances singing directly into the camera as she winds her way through a festival crowd at night, briefly pausing every so often to engage with some of the other revelers. If the flashing imagery isn’t enough to make you get up off that couch and head to the nearest EDM concert, the song’s pulsating electronic beat should do the trick.

“Concrete” will appear on Crystal Castles’ forthcoming album and their first with Frances, who replaces former singer Alice Glass. Check out the video for “Concrete” above, and also revisit the band’s previous singles, “Frail” and “Deicide”.
