"I decided to do Maximum Balloon to get a bunch of pop music out of my system," Sitek tells Spinner. "It's kind of a band of imagination. You know, I was probably in an imagery band when I was seven, then I pursued being in a real band, and now I've reverted back to the imaginary band." Talk about Gorilla parallels.
Guests on the album include David Byrne, Karen O and Little Dragon, but this particular track and its accompanying video features Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London. Sitek explains that he had been working on London's album when the rapper heard a working version of 'Groove Me' and decided he wanted in on it. "I said, 'There's a trick to it,'" recalls Sitek. "'If you're going to be on it, it has to come out on my record.'"
The eye-catching video follows London from the laundromat to a house party, with everything under the sun in between. Check it out below and you'll see exactly what we mean.
