After experimental electronic overtones dominated their last two albums, the last released five years ago, Brooklyn veterans Ratatat seem to have returned and added to their guitar driven funk like beginnings with their latest multi-layered dance inspired single, ‘Abrasive’ from their fifth record Magnifique, set for release July 17 on XL. Despite its stilted motorik driven disposition, it’s probably the most accessible thing the instrumental duo have done. Listen below and check out the 4000 image animated video by member Evan Mast.

From the forthcoming album, ‘Magnifique’, XL Recordings. Out July 17.
