PWR BTTM is goofy as hell, like we could ever forget. The fab rock 'n' roll duo's "Answer My Text" is the latest single from their upcoming Pageant, a nervous flirtation wrought in emojis and a "funny joke from that TV show you said that you like."
Mary Shyne directs the lyric video, illustrating that imaginary TV show with a range of drawn emojis on a phone screen. But the catharsis is in the all-caps "ANSWER MY TEXT, YOU D***." We have all been there.
Pageant comes out May 12 on Polyvinyl. PWR BTTM plays NPR Music's SXSW showcase with The New Pornographers, Joey Bada$$, Lizzo, Sylvan Esso and Hurray For The Riff Raff on March 15.
