"This Head I Hold" Video - Electric Guest

I first wrote about Electric Guest back in January and since then, the jazzy, electropop duo has completed a residency at L.A.'s Echo, completed their first tour, made a splash at SXSW and released Mondo, their Danger Mouse-produced debut album. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better combination of talent, innovation, hard work and opportunities taken as Electric Guest. They've gotten some great momentum behind them and a quick listen will prove that the hype is well deserved. Mondo was just released this week and they also produced a video for the first single, "This Head I Hold." As I stated back in January, the song is absolutely fantastic and totally danceable with its throwback vocal tones and amazing loops. The surreal video compliments the vibe of the song really well and the offbeat visuals and abrupt middle break make the video a completely unique experience from just listening to the song by itself. Plus, it's pretty fun to just watch it a couple times in a row to either practice some new dance moves or contemplate the purchase of a new fake beard. Either way, "This Head I Hold" will be stuck in your eyes and ears for days.       

Also, keep your eyes peeled for Electric Guest when they make their major network TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman on May 4th!

  1. My son bangs his head occasionally too. Though less so these days and certainly not to the extent mentioned above. (Incidentally my son's uncle is a drummer in a metal band :) head gasket sealer
