Beauty Pill – Afrikaner Barista

Beauty Pill Describes Things As They Are is full of unique sounds and Chad Clark’s distinctive lyrics, but “Afrikaner Barista”‘s funky bassline groove makes it my favorite song on the album. Beauty Pill tapped acclaimed music video director Jeff Sheven for the accomapnying visuals, and a theme emerges with the third video for “Afrikaner Barista”. The videos focus on the faces of the songs’ singers, first Jean Cook with “Dog With Rabbit In Mouth Unharmed” and Clark on “Steven & Tiwonge” and this one. Clark’s eyes are just hypnotic as he sings while abstract and sometimes concrete images play over his face. Read more about the music video collaboration over at the blog Death & Taxes.
