Watch Badboxes' Captivating Black & White Video for "The Mystery"

If Kanye West started an indie band, they might sound something like Badboxes. This Pittsburgh trio has been on our radar for a minute now, but it's about time to introduce them to the public. It's hard to pin down this group with just one genre but the band saves us the trouble, describing their innovative sound as "Northern Pop". Upon further listening, Badboxes' music scans as a unique breed of alternative pop, influenced as much by the charismatic hip-hop of Kendrick Lamar and Drake as it is the moody soundscapes of Bon Iver and James Blake.


Their latest offering comes in the form of a visually stunning music video for "The Mystery" off of their debut EP JSMN. The monochromatic video features a very Daft Punk-esque robot as the protagonist, following his actions around the inner city as he seduces a lady, scuffles with humans, and drives around on a badass motorcycle. The song matches the visuals perfectly, with a sultry sax solo and lead singer/producer Harrison Wargo's vocals heavily processed through a talk box. So switch the quality to 1080p, crank up the headphones, and watch this masterpiece of a music video unfold.

Connect with Badboxes on Facebook and Twitter and listen to more tunes like the one below on Soundcloud.
