THEESatisfaction, Shabazz Palaces' Ishmael Butler and Porter Ray spin around in psychedelic patterns in the new video for "EarthEE."
Seattle-based experimental hip-hop/R&B duo THEESatisfaction come through with the music video for "EathEE," the title track off their sophomore LP on Sub Pop Records. The astral visuals see rapper STAS and vocalist CAT joined by Shabazz Palaces' Ishmael Butler and Porter Ray as they spin around in royal blue psychedelic patterns and "loosen up their minds" over a stuttering synthesizer beat. "It's a short visual meditation on the textile traditions of home, sacred Geo Metrics, theta based communication and the whirling dervish. A sonically driven work of ancient Afro continuum," explains music video director Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes to i-D. Catch the duo on their upcoming summer tour dates across Europe, the United States and Canada (listed underneath) and watch the new visuals below. THEESatisfaction's EarthEE LP is available now.
