Watch Just A Band's Phone-Recorded Visuals For 'Probably For Lovers'

Watch Just A Band's video for their feel-good track 'Probably For Lovers.'


We’ve been on the genre blending futuristic-afro-funk of Kenya's Just A Band for a minute now. Last we heard, JAB’ s frontman Blinky Bill was teaming up with Russian producer Mitya Burmistrov to collaborate on their dark and stormy "Raindrop." Now, the self dubbed "nerdy, electro-pop/art collective" returns with more visuals from their standout 2012 release Sorry for the Delay. For this clip, JAB recruited friends to shoot themselves with their phones, singing and dancing along to "Probably For Lovers." The result is a video that  accompanies the minimalist quality of their infectious single. The shots are filled with an array of crazy dance moves, pensive stares and ear-to-ear grins that lend to the overall warm and fuzzy feel of the track. Watch the video below and for more JAB check out their AIYE mixtape and Player Xchange with Go Dreamer.
