Kishi Bashi releases Nintendo themed video for ‘Say Yeah’ [Video]

Following the release of his third album “Sonderlust” on September 16,  Kishi Bashi has released the video for the song ‘Say Yeah.’ The track, which was the first single off the album, showcases the singer and multi-instrumentalist’s knack for blending together complicated layers of synth, strings and bass. It’s a track that’s part disco, part folk, and part video game theme, and one that’s easy to get up and dance to.

The visual accompaniment to the song matches the video game theme of the music, following a neon geometric hero on a quest to find love. It creates a psychedelic and colorful universe packed with Nintendo era nostalgia. Check out the video above.
