Tunde Adebimpe

TV On The Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe is joining the long line of Brooklyn indie rock luminaries (Ed Droste, Amber Coffman, and TVOTR member Dave Sitek included) who’ve made a break for Los Angeles — but not before going on a short tour with his other group, Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band. In the midst of those West Coast dates, Higgins has shared a video for “Mad Lifeline” from last fall’s Debut EP. Among other things, the clip features a strange introductory parking lot scene, dancing angels of death, and a lengthy intergalactic graphics sequence. Watch it below.

  1. You could also count Liars to that list of transplants as well. I believe one of the dudes from Real Estate also headed west (granted they’re Jersey, but that’s just a walk over the bridge from NYC)? Who would have thought the day would come that Los Angeles would be the more affordable / artistically inspiring scene than Brooklyn.
