As they prep the international release of Defiant Order, French DJ/producer group Birdy Nam Nam is making a run for one of the year’s freshest videos with “Goin’ In.” The track, which boasts a repeating sample of Canadian rapper Saukrates, is an urgent, rushing banger. And it serves as the perfect soundtrack for a set of visuals that are equal parts Star Wars and cheesy ’80s Saturday Morning cartoons. The former’s influence is apparent in the way the guys of Birdy Nam Nam play their instruments like the characters in the Cantina scene. As far as the ’80s thing goes, well, you kind of can’t see neon and not associate it with that decade. This is great, by the way.
Defiant Order is due out Sept. 19.
