Published Nov 06, 2013If ever you needed confirmation that Thao & the Get Down Stay Down makes for good marching music, then you should probably peep the indie outfit's moving new video for We the Common track "The Feeling Kind."
Shot along San Francisco's newly rebuilt Bay Bridge, it finds Thao Nguyen heading out on a morning march. While early on the parka jacket-adorned singer is walking all by herself, by song's end she's joined by a parade of flag-wavers, trumpet tootlers, plumed dancers and more. You'll find the party in the player down below, courtesy of Stereogum.
The single is also the title track of a newly released EP, which includes covers of Melanie, the Troggs, and Yo La Tengo. The Feeling Kind EP is available now via Ribbon Music.
