Buraka Som Sistema's "Stoopid" Video Is One Big Slo-Mo Paint Explosion

by Gary Pini

A mind-blowing barrage of slo-mo explosions, furniture bashing, paint throwing, gleeful random smashing and...almost forgot the burning car. But don't get too enthralled by the non-stop action that you ignore the music: the first single, "Stoopid," from Buraka Som Sistema's new, as-yet-untitled album, out on June 9th. The award-winning Portugese group is out to clear your brain of lingering world-music stereotypes. The clip was directed by the street/graffiti artist Vhils and Joao Pedro Moreira and, if you're heading over to Barcelona for SONAR, they're playing on June 13th.
