Luke Top is the frontman for the Californian Afrobeat party-starters Fool’s Gold, a truly great live band if you ever get the chance to see them. Early next year, he’ll release a solo album, and the first single is “On The Beach,” which turns his band’s rippling, percussive style slightly toward indie-pop. Stephen Paul filmed the song’s video at what appears to be an abandoned, destroyed, graffiti-flecked Californian waterpark. The video’s own YouTube description calls it “ruin porn.” Watch it below.
The “On The Beach” single is out 12/11 on Grand Gallop. The album is out 3/4.
