Backwards handwriting doesn’t come very easily to most of us, but Cold War Kids seem to have it down pat in their new video for ‘Loner Phase.’ Check out the clip above for a visual depiction of the song’s lyrics, as well as some colorful (albeit messy) doodling.

The track is from the Long Beach, Calif.-based indie rockers’ latest studio release, ‘Dear Miss Lonelyhearts,’ which dropped back in April via Downtown Records.

Cold War Kids have a series of summer and fall tour dates lined up, including a few performances alongside the Lumineers. Check out their official site for the newly expanded itinerary.
