Sleater-Kinney is out with the second song and video from their upcoming tenth studio album, Path of Wellness — out June 11th via Mom and Pop  and it’s sure to give you a contact high.

Directed by Kelly Sears, the visual for “High in the Grass” features trees with eyes, headless dancers, and a bunch of decapitated folks performing unsuccessful CPR.

Opening with chaotic guitar, the track kicks off like a chase in a horror flick — all ominous riffs — before slowing down to allow Carrie Brownstein’s delicate soprano to break through as she sings the titular line, “High in the grass.” The song/video culminates in a wild dance party as Brownstein sings, “The spring then came alive and we lost our minds/danced to no music like fools.”

“High in the Grass” follows the first single off the upcoming record, “Worry With You,” which dropped earlier this month. Brownstein and bandmate Corin Tucker recorded Path of Wellness in Portland, Oregon, during the pandemic. It marks their first LP as a duo; longtime drummer Janet Weiss left the band shortly before 2019’s The Center Won’t Hold was released.

Sleater-Kinney is heading out on a co-headlining tour with Wilco, dubbed the It’s Time Tour, this summer.
