Video: Awesome New Republic "Digital World"



Awesome New Republic's popularity seems to just keep growing and growing. With Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester covering their track and the release of their EP Rational Geographic Vol. 1, the Miami duo seem to be on the cusp of making it as a national act.

Speaking of Rational Geographic Vol. 1, Pitchfork just posted the video for the single "Digital World" on its website. Check it out! The production values are the highest we've seen in a while for a Miami artist not involved in hip-hop. This is second video to be release off the EP; "Magic City" was release earlier this year.

And in case you weren't aware, the EP is available free for download via anrmiami.com. If you can't get enough of the boys, Rational Geographic Vol. 2 will be available July 21, while Vol. 3 will be released October 27 -- all presumably free, of course.
