Most of the space is being taken up by the bass and synth vamping on the chord roots.  
The other instruments attack, in the same rhythm as before, roughly these chords:

e|5-----5--5-5--|       e|3-----3--3-3--|
B|7-----7--7-7--|  and  B|7-----7--7-7--|
G|5-----5--5-5--|       G|5-----5--5-5--|

Disclaimer (of sorts): I usually play in Eb, so I was transcribing this with a capo on 1 
and then transposing everything down a half step. I triple checked, but if anything 
sounds super wrong, try lowering it by one fret because I might have missed something.

Otherwise, enjoy!
