Published May 04, 2015When the Chemical Brothers announced their new Born in Echoes LP a couple of weeks ago, they promised they'd soon be teasing a new single featuring A Tribe Called Quest rapper Q-Tip. True to their word, the electronic music outfit have now premiered their "Go" team-up with the Abstract in a well-choreographed, team skills-building video.
Directed by famed filmmaker and music video genius Michel Gondry, the off-kilter angles and colour scheme of the retro-futuristic visuals look like they could belong to an early '70s sci-fi flick. Scored by the pulsating electro wriggle of the Chemical Brothers, it finds a group of monochrome land-rowers undertaking a rigorous routine around a concrete jungle. Various spin moves and unified arm lifts are put on display, while an unseen Q-Tip delivers adrenaline-pumping lines about doing your best.
