We're obviously big fans of Thao and the Get Down Stay Down
, . We learned awfully fast that the band's newest album Know Better Learn Faster
(Kill Rock Stars), is an even better album than the one that proceeded it. We also told you about our little road trip to Philly to film the band yesterday
. So yes, we'll jump at any opportunity to get down with Thao, and in the band's newest video for "When We Swam", so too do a bunch of groovy beach goers.
It's an amphibious musical attack here, with the band washing ashore to give all those sunbathers a nice little party in the sand. Why, the band even challenges the kids to a tug-o-war competition. And the results? Well, it's not good.
The band is currently touring the country in support of Know Better Learn Faster
