Connecticut indie-pop duo Mates of State are proud to announce the premiere of their new music video for unless i'm led on RollingStone.com today. The video is directed by Jimi Patterson, who also directed the band's previous videos for palomino and maracas. It was shot in a single take, and there are no edits, lending a stream-of-consciousness style of playfulness and exploration that fits perfectly with the gentle atmosphere and relaxed melodies of unless i'm led.

The band will be supporting Mountaintops this summer with a tour along the West Coast, which follows an earlier tour in 2012 that was focused along the East Coast. The tour begins on June 28 with two nights at Seattle's Tractor Tavern, and the band will also be playing two shows in San Francisco and Los Angeles, separated by a 4th of July show in Santa Cruz. ·read less·
