Buzzbands Premieres “Exiled State of Mind” Video

We finally finished our first music video, for our song and quasi-Jay-Z cover,


The song is the first cut on SIDE B of our 12″, CURRENT , that’s out now, and is the first track on our covers record, SHAPES AND VARIATIONS. The video was directed and shot by our good friends BYRON TURK,  who is most notably a camera man, tornado hunter, and fearless blogger on Discovery Channel’s “Storm Chasers,” and photographer JESSY PLUME. debuted the video on Friday, calling it “a rather shapely variation of Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind”… a welcome respite from the spate of straight-ahead covers; re-conceptualized, it’s more of a response than a cover.”
