With everyone bingeing Tiger King and some even digging for Joe Exotic's recorded albums, soon they'll need something new to devour. We recommend grouptherapy.'s new EP, this is not the album. and their new video video for "Powerball," premiering above. The collective of TJW, Jadagrace, RHEA, KOI, and executive producer Dee Lilly pays close attention to detail: "We run together but we’re all separate artists," they write in an email to The FADER. "Like the Power Rangers, but we’re all the red one."
For their latest video, each member plays his criminal alter-ego in a kidnapping mission. But it turns out the target is a confused TJW. The video is soundtracked by his solo verse and a hook filled with clever, short bars ("I'm an old voice with a new head," "Bitch I am a luxury good / You want me? Just get me imported") and backed by a bouncy, light on the ears beat. It switches gears towards the end into a spacey R&B track as TJW makes a run for it.
Each member has now released his or her own EP of an A-side/B-side single with TJW acting as the lynchpin. Stay tuned of the real album from the group.
