WATCH: Silversun Pickups Video Features Lesbian Teen Love Story

The band's latest video isn't your typical 5-minute viewing experience—and we like that.

Silversun Pickups released its latest video on YouTube today for the "Dots and Dashes (Enough Already)" off of the album Neck of the Woods, and it focuses on a pair of hip, young lesbians we totally want to hang out with. One YouTube commenter accurately compared the 5-minute story to Desperately Seeking Susan, as the girls are blowing off gym class, riding around suburbia on a motorized bike, jumping fences to go swimming in backyard pools, and running up and down the beach.

But as with any real love story, no matter the length, it's a little bit heartbreaking, leaving a bittersweet taste once it's clear that the jogging-phobic high school student isn't going to live happily ever after with her Nasty Gal-clad rebel girlfriend. 

Nonetheless, it's a refreshing take on lesbians in music videos—there's no T.A.T.U-style exploitation here. It's just a lovely watch. Oh, and the song's not to shabby either.
