Local psychedelic rockers, Needle Points, released a video for “Cocoanuts” off of last year’s Bom Tagangu. The band makes “street level bougie” out of jazzy guitar riffs, sweet drum beats and liberated lyrics. Earlier this year, the band did a session with the Drexel student-run station WKDU. This weekend, the band will be a part of The Barbary’s Breakout 2 in Milton, PA.
The short video for “Cocoanuts” begins with drums beating and indistinct lyrics. However, it quickly grows into a fanatic, joyful sort of chaos with the addition of a rhythmic guitar and various percussion. The images on the screen fluctuate between trippy closeups of various objects and a pretty cool dancing tiger. It’s an interesting accompaniment to the music, bringing out the more tribal elements of the Needle Points.
