On 2014's Extended Play One, San Antonio's Parallelephants delight in tidiness, Wes Anderson-ian arrangement and fine cuts of cloth. So it's no surprise that their new video "Online Baptism" does just the same, showing off the band's Chic guitars and a pair of super-fresh off-white loafers.

"Are you patient?" asks singer Thom Sykes, kicking off the tune. With such perfect pop execution, you don't need much patience to admit to this baptism. Hitting only the floor tom and snare, the drums give emphasis to the clean, pastel work on guitars and synth.
