Last time we caught up with Pakistani-American band the Kominas, they were running amok through Philadelphia in the video for "Banana." In the new clip for their slinky guitar tune, "Disco Uncle," the band's car breaks down and they're rescued by the chillest old dude ever. "'Disco Uncle'" is a fictional story inspired by real events involving an uncle who parties too hard," the band told FADER over email. Stitching together footage from a punk house outside Providence and The Kominas' live show with Black Lips and King Khan, the amiable video features the band and their delinquent uncle—who trades his dress shirt for a studded jacket—hanging in the studio, in a weed circle, and sprinting away from the cops after tagging a wall. He even got us blow, the song goes towards the end. Slow down, disco uncle.
