Many of you probably remember being as ecstatic as we were when you first heard Electric Wire Hustle, probably sometime last year. A couple days ago, they returned with a video for “Again” off their debut album. Filmed as a time lapse in New York City’s Time Square, director Vibol Moeung attributes the inspiration behind the video to the first lines of the song, “I have no sense of time.” He found Times Square an ideal place to create a “uniquely overwhelming visual cacophony of lights, billboards, people, traffic & movement…as if being in a hallucinogenic dream-like state.”

We are also super geeked to hear that the group is steady at work on their sophomore album, which should be ready for release in early 2012.
