Have you ever found yourself in an empty BART car and felt the urge to dance your butt off? Well, that’s exactly what singer Nate Salman does in Les Sins’ new video for “Why,” released just yesterday. With its explosions of bright color and gleeful uninhibited dancing (of both the human and CGI varieties), the video for “Why,” directed by local filmmaker Ben Smith, is the perfect accompaniment for the exuberant track.
Les Sins’ Chaz Bundick (of Toro Y Moi fame) provides the propulsive bass line, snappy percussion, and washes of synth. Salman, who is also the frontman for Waterstrider, delivers a vocal hook destined to be stuck in your head at least until the next time the Giants win the World Series. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself dancing along, just remember to keep the BART aisle clear.
“Why” appears on Les Sins’ new album Michael, released November 3 on Company Records, a new label partnership between Chaz Bundick and Carpark Records. Watch the video below.
