New Electric Guest “This Head I Hold” Video, Playing Letterman on May 4th | The Audio Perv
23 Apr
2012

A day before the April 24 release of their highly anticipated debut LP Mondo, Electric Guest are premiering the music video for single “This Head I Hold” across all MTV platforms. Directed by Keith Schofield (Charlotte Gainsbourg & Beck, Justice), the video sees a peculiar dance audition set in a mundane auditorium–until lead singer Asa Taccone’s stage fright sends him into a post-apocalyptic fantasy… or reality? Check the video out and judge for yourself:

Electric Guest is scheduled to make its network television debut May 4th on The Late Show With David Letterman, performing “This Head I Hold.” Currently on the second leg of its North American tour, the band have recently confirmed sets at some of this summer’s most anticipated festivals, including Washington’s Sasquatch Festival and San Francisco’s Outside Lands.

Early reviews of Mondo have been resoundingly positive: Filter Magazine calls them “infectious,” The Los Angeles Times praises Asa Taccone’s “romantic falsetto” and Blackbook raves “it’s rare that you come across an unknown band with such raw, unbridled talent and well-constructed songs… you’ll understand that this may be the beginning of something truly great.”
