Thao and the Get Down Stay Down Release Jittery, Violent Video for ‘Astonished Man’ [Video]

Thao and the Get Down Stay Down are back with the another jittery gem. “Astonished Man” sounds at home with the percussive, fascinating music that she and her band have been making for nearly 10 years now, but still sounds fresh and vital. The track jolts along with scratchy and raw sounds layered atop a groove that ties the whole thing together perfectly. The video is hard to look away from as well, as violent images are intercut with shots of prosthetics being applied — it’s a perfect match for the off-kilter but still instantly accessible song. Thao and the Get Down Stay Down teamed up with Merill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs to produce the new record, an incredible match if ever there was one. A Man Alive is out March 4.
