Ben Cook and Matt DeLong have been slugging it out together for a long time now, but this sleaze-pop transformation is a bit of a shocker. From the hard-phat hardcore of No Warning

’ ’77 strut, the duo’s emergence as synth-toting casanovas with guitar pyrotechnics à la Egyptian Lover
is a breath of fresh hairspray. Danielle Nemet follows up her previous clip for fellow east-side hooligans Actual Water
with a voyeuristic VHS glimpse into the barfly scene, where blacklit bartenders, boomboxes and gold dresses go bump in the night.
