Sinkane Premiere Runnin’ Video + Tour with Yeasayer, Toro Y Moi

Somewhere in a developing nation, a political leader is assassinated in the midst of his supporters. He and his wife are thrown in the back of his car and rushed away by his bodyguards. While the leader holds on for dear life in the backseat, the dark events of that day replay in his and his wife’s heads. Directed by Philip Di Fiore (Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Caveman, Antibalas) and featuring the members of the band, this is the first official music video from Sinkane.

Sinkane’s new album Mars is out now in the US and Canada on DFA, and out later this Fall in Europe on City Slang.
