Berlin-based duo It's A Musical has debuted a brand new video for the title track off their sophomore LP, For Years And Years, out now with Morr Music. Premiered at NYLON, the video is a lo-fi blend of carefully planned visuals and hand-crafted quirky effects. It was directed by Sven Flesch and Sebastian Nehen, with Flesch explaining, "We went for minimalism with the visual elements: Two neon colored tapes, concrete floors, and the classic It's A Musical solid colored jump suits." After recently returning from a set of Japanese shows, the duo will embark on a European tour this week, including dates with The Whitest Boy Alive.

Watch the video 'For Years And Years' at the NYLON premiere or below:

Comprised of Ella Blixt aka Bobby Blumm and Robert Kretzschmar, the duo wrote the new batch of songs together and recruited Norman Nitzsche (The Whitest Boy Alive) to help with the mixing stage.Following the band's The Music Makes Me Sick debut LP, the tracks on the latest output have a certain DIY feel to them, a vibe that makes the listener forget that both Blixt and Kretzschmar are actually trained multi-instrumentalists (Kretzschmar also plays drums for Masha Qrella, and Blixt recently worked with Peaches). Furthermore, both members of It's A Musical help organize special rock camps for young teenage girls, all about keeping the original Riot-Grrrl vibe alive.
