Brooklyn-based indie dance outfit Rubblebucket has shared their new video for “My Life.” In anticipation of their forthcoming album Survival Sounds, the video previews the band in a new (black)light.

The video features a high energy live performance from the band, which was formed by Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth after they graduated college.

“A lot of people have come and gone through this band,” Toth writes. “The pure mechanics of 10 people in a van traveling 50-60 thousand miles per year to express themselves emotionally on stage and get drunk every night, for very little bread are unlikely. It’s not for everyone. But the change always hurt even if it was for the best. Adam and I co-wrote this song, “My Life.” At its core its about coming to terms with impermanence, and learning how to let it hurt, grow from it, and keep on keeping on, la di da da da da!”

This positive outlook can be seen in both the Rubblebucket’s career and the video, which is full of the band’s glowing spirit.

The follow up to 2011’s Omega La La, Survival Sounds is Rubblebucket’s fourth LP, and will be released Aug. 25 via Communion Records. Watch “My Life” live above, and take a look at the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
