Albert Hammond Jr. – Carnal Cruise (Music Video)

by Steven Spoerl

Albert Hammond Jr. has continuously proven that he’s so much more than just a member of The Strokes. He’s quietly put together a solo discography that’s more consistent than his main vehicle’s and, frankly, one that’s more interesting.  Hammond extends this unlikely winning streak with AHJ, an EP that’s out now through Cult Records. Earlier today Complex premiered a colorful smoke-filled music video for EP standout “Carnal Cruise”.  The impossibly charming Laurent Briet-directed video’s general conceit is inspired and simplistic, featuring only Hammond mugging his way through a forest aided by a minimal use of image-bending special effects. Keep an eye out for the percussion breakdown at around 2:35. It’s magical.
