Baio – “Sister Of Pearl” Video

Baio – “Sister Of Pearl” Video

Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio has been making precise electronic pop under his own name for a few years now, but he’s finally getting around to releasing a debut full-length this fall. We’ve heard two songs from The Names already, the thumping “Brainwash yyrr Face” and the undeniably catchy (and Vampire Weekend-y) “Sister Of Pearl.” The latter song is about being yourself and not caring what others think, and Baio puts that credo into action in a stylish, endearing new video that shows him dancing goofily all around London in a suit and sneakers — it reminds me of this (also very lovable) Will Butler video, actually. As Baio told Noisey, “I’ve always loved dancing — some of my earliest life memories involve dancing around my family’s dining room table to “Thriller” when I was little. For this video, Daniel Navetta found some incredible places in London for me to do some dancing. I hope you enjoy watching me creep around the city I’ve lived in for the past two years…I know I had fun making the video.” Watch below.

The Names is out 9/18 via Glassnote.
