Portuguese collective HHY & The Macumbas have shared a bonkers video for ‘Swisid Mekanize Rejiman’, lifted from their recently released second album Beheaded Totem. Speaking about the video, founding member Jonathan Uliel Saldanha aka HHY had this to say:
“This video is made in a vibe and tempo that brings a spasmodic effect to the hyper-presence in the music of HHY&TM. With images that I’m sure can resonate with peripheral places in any human city, but in this case comes with flavours from a popular Portuguese party style called “Romaria”: done in earlier days for the saints, but now serving mainly the sinners that look for trouble in the night – a night illuminated by explosive pyrotechnics.”
