Watch Les Sins Start a Dance Party at the BART Station in This Video for "Why"

Posted By on Thu, Nov 13, 2014 at 9:07 AM

The entire chillwave-loving Internet gasped an excited gasp earlier this year when it heard that Chaz Bundick, better known as the Berkeley-dwelling force behind Toro y Moi, had been at work on an upbeat, dancey new side project: Les Sins. Well, that project's debut LP, Michael, finally dropped yesterday, and to celebrate, Bundick released this video for the party-ready, irresistibly geeky-funky single "Why," featuring fellow East Bayer Nate Salman of Waterstrider on vocals (and sick moves).

Should you be confused about what you're supposed to do while listening to this track, let Salman and Bundick lead you through a variety of possibilities: Dancing at a BART station, dancing on a bus, dancing on the street, etc. Oh, and it helps if you have a motion-sensor bodysuit, though we might try some of this at home later with a Hypercolor t-shirt.

Check the video below, and head to 1015 Folsom tonight, Nov. 13, to catch Les Sins as part of  Bundick's Michael tour.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
