Capital Cities have released a new music video for “Kangaroo Court,” the second track to hit the airwaves from the act’s debut album, In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery. The clip, co-directed by Capital Cities members Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant, features guest appearances from Glee star Darren Criss and Raising Hope cast member Shannon Woodward. The band members and actors all dress as animals in the surreal concept clip.
Capital Cities will follow up the release of the video with a performance of the song on the October 1st edition of Ellen before launching the Bright Futures tour with Fitz And The Tantrums on October 20th in Richmond, Virginia.
The first single from In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery, called “Safe And Sound,” hit Number One on the Modern Rock radio chart before crossing over to other formats.
The song has sold 1.3 million singles in the U.S. while the video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Visual Effects.
