Mystery Jets have unveiled their brand new official music video for their current single ‘Greatest Hits’. Featuring a tap dancing Kapil, merry-go-rounds and lines like “Hold on to ‘The Boy With The Arab Strap’ ‘cos I’m holding on to ‘Village Green’”, it’s quite possibly our favourite video of theirs yet!

Mystery Jets' New Album 'Radlands' Out Now! 30/04/12 in The Mystery Jets

Of the making of the album, frontman Blaine Harrison explains:

‘We arrived in Austin with a handful of songs, but one in particular felt like it captured the spirit of why we had come there. It was called Radlands (a fusion of the 1970s Terrence Malick film ‘Badlands’ and Redlands, Keith Richard’s Sussex estate), which is also what we named our studio; a big old wooden house on the banks of the Colorado river. All we brought on the plane were the guitars on our backs. In the daytime we wrote lyrics on the porch and in the evenings a family of Deer would gather in the back yard to hear us play. When we arrived home, it was hard to believe any of it even happened. It somehow all felt like a strange dream.’
