Blaqstarr Video: “Rider Girl”

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/oY-TbtwUXsM" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

Check out Blaqstarr‘s new video for “Rider Girl” from the Divine EP. As if the music isn’t catchy enough, Blaqstarr also seems determined to stick in our heads visually, with his glistening muscles and fauxhawk. The motorcycle-riding girl of the song is present but only as a psychedelic silhouette, constantly in motion.

Don’t forget Blaqstarr‘s Divine EP is out this week [iTunes]. He is performing a special showcase at Qué Bajo?! at Santos Party House, NYC on Thursday, 1/27 at 10 pm and an additional live show at MeanRed’s Dark Disco at Good Units, NYC on Saturday, 1/29.
