Les Savy Fav recently announced the May 10 release of Oui, LSF, their first new album in 14 years and one of our most anticipated albums of spring. Today, the group have shared another new song from their upcoming album, titled “Limo Scene.” It’s a post-punk song with a sleek groove, and it arrives with a new video directed by the group’s Syd Butler.

Singer Tim Harrington said about the new song, “This song is the story of being abducted by the spirit of music past while out looking for the grave of Turner ‘Rocky’ Wilson Jr. — Rocky was bassist for the doo-wop band The Rivingtons. He made up ‘Pappa-Oom-Mow-Mow’ (1962) that the Trashmen took and uses for ‘Surfin Bird’ (1963). It’s been copped, quoted, and reinvented ever since including the end of this song. You could call it a love letter to musical legacy, but fuck letter is more like it. It’s about how baby music gets made — an orgy of breeding ideas”
