Video: Blood Orange – “Chamakay”

Blood Orange has popped up somewhat unexpectedly this evening with a new single and video. “Chamakay” is a smooth, tropical, ’80s-influenced jam, just the kind of thing you’d expect from Dev Hynes’ Blood Orange project, and all the better for it. The video, shot in the South American nation of Guyana and directed by Adam Bainbridge, is a colorful, light-hearted affair, featuring Dev showing off his best dance moves, and generally being awesome. Watch above, and listen out for backing vocals provided by Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek.
