Les Savy Fav Shares “Limo Scene” 

Following the release of their first new music in 14 years, Les Savy Fav is back again, to share their third single “Limo Scene”, from upcoming LP OUI, LSF, due out May 10th.

Talking about “Limo Scene”, Tim Harrington says, “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”

The single comes alongside a new music video, directed by Syd Butler and edited by Andrew Reuland.

In addition to their slew of upcoming shows in Europe, Les Savy Fav have announced a handful of dates across the U.S. in the early summer. They are also slated to play Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 21. Find more information and tickets HERE.
