Check out the new video from Shabazz Palaces for the song "Are you... Can you... Were you? (Felt)" from the album Black Up, which was released last year via Sub Pop Records. Vote on the video below! The video was directed By Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, and Shabazz Palaces start their U.S. tour on Apr. 3 in Minneapolis.
Sub Pop describes the Shabazz Palaces experience like this “Like rich velvet hijabs or gold threaded abayas. Luxury as understood by the modest. Shabazz Palaces. If Bedouins herded beats instead of goats and settled in Seattle instead of the Atlas Mountains, this would be their album. Forward thinkers but nostalgic for a sparer time when ancient astronomers only recognized five planets. Hip hop. Black light uses electromagnetic radiation to eradicate microorganisms, but shabazz didn’t come to kill a sound, just to shine their own incandescent lamp on this. Hear. Hard and clear.”
