George Clanton: “Dumb” video

George Clanton released one of our favorite albums of the year, the lush electronic pop tapestry Slide. One of the highlights is the moody, shimmering track “Dumb,” which now gets a stunning music video treatment courtesy of director Cory Nixon. The centerpiece of the video features Clanton singing in the back of a pickup truck  spiraling up and down a parking garage. We then cut to a number of brooding shots – including Clanton shredding in a giant fountain, and then floating in a daze while flower petals fall around him. It’s crisply shot, well-edited, and it fully captures Clanton’s intoxicating charisma.

Furthermore, George Clanton will be returning to perform at the Ché Café early next year, this time with LA-by-way-of-San Diego indie pop band TV Girl. That show is on 2/9, and you can buy tickets HERE. Having seen Clanton twice this year – including at the Ché a couple months ago – I can say he’s one of the most dynamic live performers around. You won’t wanna miss it. In the meantime, watch the video for “Dumb” below.
