    Scavengers doesn’t feel like single and to me and that’s a promising indication of the album to come.

    The more I listen to this single the more I love it and am allowing myself to be excited for the album. yes, I’m one of the people that was let down by palms tremendously. this sounds fantastic comparatively

    was gonna say the more I listen, the more I’m hearing shades of Vheissu, the alchemy index, and beggars from different aspects of the song.

    I'm surprised by this only because it feels like a natural progression from Palms to me

    I mean they can progress from something I don’t like much into something I do like, that’s what makes it a progression

    I hear some Vheissu in some of the spacey-er guitar tones. Obviously beggars in a lot of it too

    my friend was one of the fans picked as extras for the video and he ended up being the dude in the mask who disappears from the porch at the very end after staring at the couple

    Also, Dustin loves the dark vs light concept I enjoy that he does too.

    Cool video, I just can't believe they had to cut that last chorus, might be the best part of the song haha

    Cut the bridge in half and the last chorus.
    Fuck radio edits.
    What is even the point in a video in 2021?

    I fully agree YouTube is extremely important, but I don't understand why the time crunch. I can understand for radio, limited time and attention spans, no visuals.
    What demand is there for a shorter video?
    The algorithm doesn't even take me to other Epitaph songs. And the song is poorer for it.

    I discovered Middle Kids this year because of a video. Music video is a tool to get attention on the band, just like getting a couple seconds of a song in a show, or appearing on a radio show or press interview.

    The edit for radio is whatever. Fans will listen to the album when it comes out. If some rando clicks on the song maybe this is enough to get them to buy the album. It fine…just cool to see the band get to do a video with a very lyrical concept.

    I was responding to your question about whether a video has a purpose in 2021 and the answer is clearly yes. YouTube is a video/visual medium, which is why artists/labels that don't have proper music videos ready release lyric videos or visualizers.

    As to your other point, I'm sure there is plenty of data regarding the ideal length of songs for broad engagement and I am almost certain that keeping the song under 4 minutes (even if just barely) is key.
