Can You Seen Straight?
by The Death Set

— Released 13th June 2011 on Counter Records

The Deathset return with the latest single from their album Michel Poiccard. A perfect slice of pop infused punk with a distinctly classic punk feel to it, Can You Seen Straight? is, in the words of lead singer Jonny Siera, “about unrelenting chaos every night. Getting ridiculous and getting in the van and doing it again (and again...). "Sent us kind of insane in the end.” Things came to a head at a particular show where the crowd invaded the stage and smashed up the drum ki...

The Deathset return with the latest single from their album Michel Poiccard. A perfect slice of pop infused punk with a distinctly classic punk feel to it, Can You Seen Straight? is, in the words of lead singer Jonny Siera, “about unrelenting chaos every night. Getting ridiculous and getting in the van and doing it again (and again...). "Sent us kind of insane in the end.” Things came to a head at a particular show where the crowd invaded the stage and smashed up the drum kit. Unfortunately the drum kit didn’t belong to the Deathset but the sponsor of the show. “I personally thought it was awesome,” recalls Siera, “but not many other of the people who were involved with the tour did.”

The video holds true to the theme of movement and travel. Shot mostly in two of the band’s favorite cities, Brooklyn and Paris, it juxtaposes beautiful shots of those cities with crazy live footage and "the various mischief the double headed tiger spirit of Death Set gets into." 

Nadastrom lead out the remixes. Signed to Switch’s Dubsided label and at the forefront of the Moombahton movement, Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom take the 80s aesthetic in a different direction, reimagining the original as epic "Moombahton" electro-pop. In demand NYC remixers Designer Drugs take “They Come To Get Us” and make it sound like a girl group getting off with the Prodigy. Nadus & Steel take the same tune and turn it into crisp trouble-funk New Jersey based Club. The band themselves round out the package with both an extended club version (surely one of the band’s longest tracks ever, weighing in at over 5 minutes!) and the original lo-fi punk version.
