OFWGKTA’s young hero heads to the trailer park in ‘Whoa’.
The clip, directed by Tyler, The Creator, sees Earl hooking up, Hoffman-style, with a mature lady in a tutu. Don’t fret – although sporadically stupid, the video largely drops the knob gags and goofs in favour of blunted surrealism. The instrumental (which also bears the hand of Tyler) layers greyscale synths over dusky boom-bap drums. Earl’s rapidfire, as ever, sounds great – a dead-eyed counterpart to Ghostface’s free-associative flights of fancy. [via Pitchfork]
Earl unveiled a clutch of new tracks a recent show at L.A.’s Low End Theory, available to watch here. Official debut Doris is due later this year.
