England's British Sea Power are releasing a new album, Let the Dancers Inherit the Party, on March 31 on their own label Golden Chariot (via Caroline International). Previously they shared a video for "Bad Bohemian" and the audio for "Keep On Trying (Sechs Freunde)." Now the band has shared a wild video for "Keep On Trying (Sechs Freunde)." A press release describes it as a "surrealist exercise video." It features the band in military uniforms, lots of animals running against a shiny gold background, multi-layered images, and other craziness. Watch it below.

"Sechs Freunde" is essentially the German phrase for six degrees of separation and British Sea Power features six members and Let the Dancers Inherit the Party is their sixth album. Guitarist Martin Noble had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "There wasn't a plan to create an album with any particular subject matter but we've kind of ended up with a case of 'think global, act local' - an album where individuals are dealing with their domestic and personal lives against a background of uncontrollable international lunacy. It was made to a background of politicians perfecting the art of unabashed lying, of social-media echo chambers, of click-bait and electronic Tonka Toys to keep us entertained and befuddled. All this can easily make the individual feel futile. But I think we've ended up addressing this confusion in an invigorating way, rather than imprisoning the listener in melancholy. Musically, it's our most direct album and maybe the first one where we maintain a coherent mood from start to finish. Perhaps a little clarity isn't a bad thing at this point."
