New York indie-pop quintet Caveman’s debut album Coco Beware is kinda-sorta named after pro wrestler Koko B. Ware, but it’s still somehow surprising that their new video for “Thankful” is based entirely around the grimier, seedier corners of the fake sport. This one depicts the entire process of Stockade winning the NYWC Fusion Championship, which is a real thing. After Lambchop’s “Gone Tomorrow,” it’s the second recent indie video to give a lyrical warts-and-all depiction of a hulking, bearded indie wrestler. That’s pretty weird, but I wouldn’t complain if that was every indie video. Austin Peters directs. Watch it below.
Coco Beware is out now on Fat Possum.
