Though Atoms For Peace won’t be touring the US until the fall they did have time earlier this month to do a DJ set in New York at Le Poisson Rouge. Now the band has released a video of Nigel and Thom in action that night. Though they’re missing three band members (including Flea), to be honest this set up feels like the best way to perform the material. The songs on Amok always felt far more suited to what we see here than any full band set up. Big abstract visuals, a mountain of drum machines, computers, and sequencers, and Thom dancing like a maniac while Nigel bobs his head like he’s in a trance — this is what Atoms For Peace should be live, and it’s fantastic. Check the video out below.
Amok is out now on XL
