Premiere: Walking Shapes’ Taught, Wiry Tour of NYC In ‘Woah Tiger’ Video

+

“Woah Tiger”, from New York’s Walking Shapes is as taught, wiry, and filled with meandering, unexplored detours as the city its video pays homage to. The clip, shot on  Super 8mm film by Adam Erick Wallace, darts from Kingsland Ave, to Hope St., South 5th and Hooper, the BQE and Williamsburg bridges, the Bowery, Broadway, the LES, the East Village, the Greenpoint waterfront,  their recent residency at  Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, and everywhere in between all in the course of 3:31 minutes.

This video is part of a short film that stretches out over the course of their entire album  Taka Come On, which the band recorded with Gus Oberg  (The Strokes, Har Mar Superstar, The Virgins). The album, out on No Shame on April 8, as the band explained, “captures the gritty and frenetic energies of our New York City; Brick buildings; stoned streets; cold winters; BK to Manhattan and back in moving subways; rooftops; and sweaty stage performances.”
