Watch This Now: TV on the Radio – “Caffienated Consciousness”

“So fused are we, to the cause of light…”

Another weird and wacky video from the brilliant TV on the Radio that comes as a bittersweet surprise. On one level, this is an outstanding clip with a low budget but a wild, outlandish imagination – they haven’t done a video this trippy since Golden Age back in 2008. On another level, however, it’s heartbreaking to think this will be the last ever video to star former bassist Gerard Smith, who tragically lost his battle to cancer only a week or so after Nine Types of Light came out. He might have been an enigma, but he was still an integral part of the band’s sound. Still, it’s not healthy to dwell to much on the negative – let’s use this video to celebrate just what an amazing musician Gerard was!
