There is something surreally familiar about French turntablists-turned-producers Birdy Nam Nam’s new video for “Cadillac Dreams.” Directed by The Great Nordic Sword Fights, it’s like a hidden mission of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas where someone slips CJ psychedelics and asks him to recruit gang members to dance the Hava Nagila. It’s bizarre, sure, but kind of beautiful; even toting oversized handguns, everybody gets along. Birdy Nam Nam’s Jaded Future EP is out now via Skrillex’s OWSLA. Below, stream a remix by the asymmetrically-buzzed labelhead. Birdy Nam Nam make their US debut this weekend at HARD in LA.
