The Picturebooks are a German grit-blues rock duo who care solely about three things: “Music, skateboarding and motorcycles, that’s all we need,” says vocalist and guitarist Fynn Claus Grabke. They're not kidding–two of those things, music and choppers, make up the premise of their new video for "Your Kisses Burn Like Fire," the first taste of their upcoming album Imaginary Horse.

Grabke and his partner, drummer Philipp Mirtschink, show self-appointed Americana gatekeeper Lana Del Rey how the lifestyle is really done in the video. The duo blaze through the desert with a femme fatale on choppers and pickup trucks just for the hell of it à la Easy Rider.

Unlike LDR, they're actually qualified to take on chopper culture seeing as the pair have built successful careers customizing motorcycles. Their designs have even graced the pages of Dice and Kustom World Magazine.

Imaginary Horse is out October 7 via RidingEasy Records.
