"Bicstan," the lead single from Hudson Mohawke's upcoming album Cry Sugar, is an electro-shock straight to your brain's rave centers, and like any decent therapy, it leaves your perspective ever so slightly shifted. We listed "Bicstan" as a Song You Need when it first dropped, and today sees the release of its music video directed by Patti Harrison (Together Together, I Think You Should Leave) and Wham City's Alan Resnick (Unedited Footage of a Bear).
The setting is a 1v1 basketball game though Harrison is more interested in dancing than playing. Fortunately, she has same latent superpowers to help her out. "When [Resnick and I] first heard the song," Harrison said in a statement, "we both started dancing like crazy and couldn’t stop. When the song ended we noticed a dusty basketball in the corner of the room that was not there before. The idea for the music video came directly from this experience. We saved a lot of money on production because we already had that free basketball.”
Hudson Mohawke's Cry Sugar is out August 12. In July he also shared with songs "Dance Forever" and "Stump."
