New music video: Darwin Deez - Radar Detector

What happens when you inject the Strokes with a dose of weirdness?

We've been following the freakily follicled Mr Deez for a while now. Radar Detector, with its sweet lyrics ("It's only been a week, but I know that you are mine to keep") and minimalist, Strokes-influenced sound, is one of many perfectly formed pop treats on his forthcoming album. Just be careful not to try out any of these "moves" down your local nightclub ...
