Shamir – Call It Off

Via Stereogum:

Earlier today, the young Vegas disco-pop phenom Shamir Baily shared the giddy, propulsive new track “Call It Off.” And now, the video has gone up online as part of the YouTube Music Awards’ strategy of carpet-bombing us all with great videos at this exact moment. In director Philip Hodges‘ clip, Shamir, on some sort of desert vision quest, hallucinates himself, and an entire boutique full of fashionistas, transforming into muppets. The puppets come from Jim Henson Studios, and they have the level of personality you’d expect from those guys. This is a ridiculously fun and charming video, a fitting successor to Shamir’s instantly iconic “On The Regular” video.

My first post on Shamir is here.

    Cute video… great grove!

  • Cute, unpretentious, and a lot more interesting than the ridiculous “Promo Only” club videos that are ubiquitous at Gay bars.

    I like it I like it I like it

    Love love love! Shamir is one of my favorites at the moment.

  • I unreservedly support all gap-toothed musicians regardless of genre. Solidarity!

    Wasn’t expecting to like this at all (based on “On The Regular”) but I think both the song and video are great. Definitely prefer him as a singer.
