Thao & The Get Down Stay Down – “Astonished Man”

Thao Nguyen has been putting out consistently great off-kilter rock with her the Get Down Stay Down band for over a decade now. Her latest release is A Man Alive, which was produced by tUnE-yArDs’ Merrill Garbus. We heard lead single “Nobody Dies” last year, and today she’s following that up with another new song (and video!) for the scratchy, oddly likable, and St. Vincent-esque “Astonished Man.” The video is a violent piece of work, showing Nguyen cutting straight through her head with a knife, but it also breaks the fourth wall a bit and shows you how the fake blood is put on. It was directed by Brook Linder. Watch and listen below.

A Man Alive is out 3/4 via Ribbon Music.
