Revolutionary Bay Area group The Coup has just released a video for their song “Land Of Seven Billion Dances.” The track is from The Coup’s highly anticipated new album Sorry To Bother You out this October 30th via Anti- Records. The record merges danceable beats, punk urgency and the astute social commentary of hip-hop to craft a defiantly unique sound which draws from the past but never sounds anything but futuristic.
The video was shot on the streets of Oakland by Yoram Savion of Yak Films, a team of young filmmakers dedicated to youth-led multimedia production which provide a voice for resistance and an alternative to played-out mainstream media. The clip features The Coup accompanied by some hyper kinetic dancing by Bay Area crews performing four distinct types of dance.
