Big Grams team up with Adult Swim for new animated short
Last year Phantogram and Outkast’s Big Boi linked up to form a collaborative project, aptly named Big Grams. The trio put out a self-titled EP on Epic Records, bringing in guest appearances ffrom Skrillex and Run The Jewels on the seven-track collection. The group has locked down a handful of choice festival slots around this year’s circuit, with stops planned for Hangout in Alabama, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. But before touring gets underway and fans get to experience their first tastes of what Big Grams is going to offer live, the group went animated in a psychedelic short feature on Adult Swim.
The feature is a double music video, tying together “Born To Shine” featuring Run The Jewels and “Run For Your Life” in a trippy adventure through the seedy underbelly of the cartoon world. The group wander through a post-apocalyptic trip-hop fantasy in this mind-bending video that lines up with Big Grams’ gritty, experimental sound perfectly. Watch above.
