“Floating in the summer sky, 99 red balloons go by.” Oh Nena, if you only knew how many balloons were probably destroyed in this video. Granted, it’s for art, which makes everything okay. Right? Although most are unfamiliar with who Maximum Balloon is, they have heard of his main gig with TV on the Radio. Maximum Balloon is Dave Sitek’s chance to get in touch with his funkier sound. From listening to his debut entitled,¬†Maximum Balloon, there’s definitely a party vibe that Sitek is trying to touch. The first single, “Tiger”, features Aku demanding “Let go of everything that you know/ don’t hold back what you feel.” The video has Chinese Dragons going in and out of a sea of red balloons attacking a flock of innocent bystanders. Fun.

Maximum Balloon is out now via Interscope.
