Watching an animated unicorn twerk isn’t normal. But on EDM it is. If that statement left you searching for context, then we’d suggest checking out the new Basement Jaxx video below.
The Brit dance heroes are finally back. We haven’t gotten a new Basement Jaxx studio album in a long, long time – not since 2009’s Scars in fact. They’ve stayed plenty busy; in 2011 they scored the cult 2011 monster movie Attack the Block, and released the musical oddity Basement Jaxx vs. Metropole Orkest – a collection of older material reworked for an orchestral performance.
Still, we’ve been waiting a long time for this one. The duo have been teasing a new album for years, but it only was very recently that we got a concrete release date and track listing. Junto is set to drop in late August. The irresistible EDM crooner “Unicorn” was streamed alongside the announcement, and from the start was a clear candidate for the music video treatment. Basement Jaxx made it happen, and it’s glorious – exactly what we expected from a song named “Unicorn”.
