TV on the Radio recently released their fifth studio album, Seeds, a project that continues their impressive musical run and unique sound that bridges the gap between indie rock, funk, and synthpop. A clear highlight, "Lazerray" caters more to a punk rock aesthetic, with lead vocalist Tunde Adebimpe playing up a fresh abstract angle in his lyrics while the band rocks out like no one's watching.
Today, Complex premieres the visuals for this standout track, which features the band performing in the same vicinity of a skateboarding session that's taking place. You'll notice familiar faces like Eric Koston, Lance Mountain, Sean Malto, and Andrew Reynolds getting in some sick tricks while TV on the Radio vibe out by the skate bowl.
The video is directed by renowned photographer Atiba Jefferson, who switched up from his regular M.O. of shooting professional athletes to craft a visual worthy of an esteemed group he calls friends. "I'm so lucky to have great friends, this video was made on people believing in me to direct my first video," he said.
TV on the Radio's Seeds is out now on iTunes. They are set to tour beginning next February, making a dozen stops throughout Europe before returning to the U.S. in March.
