L.A. trio Automatic have announced their second album, Excess, which will be out June 24 via Stones Throw. They made the album with producer Joo-Joo Ashworth of Froth (he's also SASAMI's brother), and singer/guitarist Izzy Glaudini says it's "about what happens to our psyches when we’re conditioned to certain values, the consequences of those values, and a desire to resist them." They also say the album take inspiration from the early '80s -- "That fleeting moment when what was once cool quickly turned and became mainstream, all for the sake of consumerism."

The first single from the album is a bit of motorik pop called "New Beginning," that was inspired by Swedish sci-fi film Aniara and imagines the “nihilism and loneliness” of the rich trying to escape a ruined planet earth into space. The very cool video, directed by Ambar Navarro, plays with those ideas, too. Watch below.

Automatic, who just played Empty Bottle's Music Frozen Dancing, will be on tour soon, including dates with Tame Impala, OSEES, and Parquet Courts, as well an appearance at Pasadena's Cruel World fest. All dates are listed below.
