Watch the video for Natural Velvet's 'Fruits'

'Fruits,' the long-awaited follow-up to "Smile"-era track 'Vega-tables,' comes to us not from the Beach Boys but local post-punks Natural Velvet.

Appropriately, everything about this track, from the jangling guitars to the "uh-oh-oh" accentuating each line of the verses, is as sugary sweet as the name would have you believe.

The single is the first song from the band's forthcoming album, "She Is Me," due out Sept. 8 on Friends Records. And the track comes with a video, directed by local horror movie auteur Chris LaMartina, in which a group partakes in a very elaborate feast of fruits and then starts rubbing the pulp all over their faces. Watch it above.
