Blood Orange - "Chamakay" [Video]

Having written, produced and collaborated with the likes of Solange, Florence + The Machine, and The Chemical Brothers, Dev Haynes, otherwise known as Blood Orange, is out with a new single and video that once again prove that the constructive genius and uniqueness he's bequeathed unto others works just as well on his own projects.

Shot on his first trip to his mother's homeland, Georgetown, Guyana, the video for the "Chamakay" is a beautiful motion picture  arraying the UK-born artist's introductory experience of Guyanese neighborhood, family and childhood, as it comes to your screen cloaked in the simple beauty of everyday scenery and human interaction.

What seems to be the freestyle love child of 80's era voguing, think Michael Jackson's signature dance style, Blood Orange's featured dance moves--which coincide with the steel drum sounds and solitary beats of the track faultlessly--enables us to see the artist in a state that is none other than a truly expressive one. Soothing harmony with Chairlift singer Caroline Polachek's sweet-sounding vocals and the calming and tropical essence of "Chamakay" make us more than excited to discover the rest of the gems on Blood Orange's album, Cupid Deluxe, which is scheduled to come out later this year.
