Shamir – “If It Wasn’t True” Video
The cassette compilation Common Interests Were Not Enough To Keep Us Together showed that the New York indie Godmode is about more than just noise-punk (though it’s still good for that), and it also introduced the world to Shamir Bailey, a 19-year-old from Las Vegas who sings disco-house anthem with rare levels of badass self-assurance. “If It Wasn’t True,” a highlight of the compilation, now has a video. Shamir shot it himself, grabbing lots of footage of his friends and his hometown, and editor Antony Sylvester put all sorts of weird filters on it. It’s an engagingly weird and homemade piece of work and a chance to discover a truly great song. Check it out below.
