Take a look at the video above – a killer (and totally exclusive) BAMM.tv performance from Atlanta’s crazed psychedelic hip-hop rockers The Constellations. Ever since they treated us to this acoustic rendition of ‘Setback’ at the SXSW Festival a couple of years back, their star has been shining brighter and brighter (ha – see what we did there? Stars? Constellations? Right? Ah, forget it).
Anyway. If you like what you hear here, you should check out the soundtrack to Jennifer Garner’s slippery new comedy ‘Butter’, as The Constellations make an appearance therein. Trailer below …
We love The Constellations here at BAMM, and – now that summer is slowly but surely creeping up on us – we think you’ll be hearing their unique blend of hip-hop psychedelia streaming from passing cars and bedroom windows with increasing regularity. Their debut album Southern Gothic is an absolute blast … and now they’re giving any creative-minded fans the chance to feature in the video for their upcoming single ‘We’re Here To Save The Day’.
The guys have posted a message on their Facebook page, which reads a little something like this:
We’re still collecting videos for “We’re Here to Save the Day!” In case you missed it last week, we’re making a music video for the song and we need your help. Send us a video of yourself singing the song. If you have kids that can sing the chorus even better! Make sure to be creative and have fun with it! Send the videos to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
So – reach for your cameras and let rip. And in order to get you in the mood for some Constellation Appreciation (Constellereciation?), feel free to check out the performance video below. BAMM caught up the guys a while back – at the 2010 SXSW Festival, to be precise – and were lucky enough to be treated to an exclusive acoustic performance of ‘Setback’.
