Love at the Bottom of the Sea will be Los Angeles songwriter Stephin Merrit’s eleventh record with the Magnetic Fields, so it’s appropriate that the record’s first single, “Andrew In Drag,” sticks with (as you may guess) one of Merrit’s favorite lyrical tropes – a blurring of gender lines. The track’s slightly NSFW video sticks with that theme too as well as with the song’s playful, indie-pop bounce, showing off the very different drag makeup routines of two characters. Watch the video while you wait for the record to drop on Merge on March 6.
