It has been nine years since the synth-loving rock band sElf has released a new album, but they certainly know how to make up for lost time.
To promote their upcoming record Super Fake Nice, the group has released a music video for their song “Runaway,” filled with the Internet’s favorite thing: cats! Kitties playing instruments, felines driving cars, meowers shaking their furry booties to the beat – this clip has every kind of cat activity one could purrs-ibely hope for.
“I’ve always fancied myself a person who’s ahead of the curve,” sElf leader Matt Mahaffey told Entertainment Weekly. “And with this video, I really think that making videos of cats is going to catch fire on the internets. I wasn’t available to be at my own video shoot, and I refuse to allow my band to have a moment in the sun without me so we hired this rad cat band that I’ve been a fan of for a while.”
Stockpiled with talented pussycats, this tail-tapping single from sElf’s musical feline doppelgängers is set to take over the web. Be one of the first to watch the clip above, and see why “Runaway” is the cat’s meow.
