Premiere: Watch a New Video From Christian Tiger School
'Chorisolo' is taken from the South African duo's debut LP
Young South African pair Luc Veermeer and Sebastiano Zanasi (a.k.a. Christian Tiger School) have made waves of late with their LA beat scene-inspired melding of the sounds of their homeland with influences ranging from hip hop to ambient and jazz. The pair’s debut album is due in the summer, ahead of which Vermeer and Zanasi have shared with XLR8R the video for a glowing, fleet-footed album track called “Chorisolo.”
On the video, directors Christopher Bisset and Ross Hillier break the cardinal “never work with children or animals” rule. “The cast … was made up of friends’ dogs,” Bisset explains. “The trickiest thing, technically, was trying to train the dogs to keep time with the beat and to stop looking at the camera. Lots of retakes.” The surprisingly disciplined results can be viewed below ahead of the release of Chrome Tapes in the summer on Tommy Boy Entertainment.
