(Sandy) Alex G released his ninth studio album House of Sugar back in September 2019 to critical acclaim. The 13-song offering saw Alex at his most reflective yet and served as the perfect way to round out the decade for one of indie rock’s most recognizable and important voices of the 2010s. Now the multi-talented musician and singer-songwriter returns with a new visual for the eighth track on that project in “Bad Man.”

This marks the second official video following (Sandy) Alex G going through a spiritual reawakening through a near-death experience during “In My Arms”. Director, cinematographer and editor Zev Magasis returns for “Bad Man” for an equally trippy visual that employs lo-fi VHS footage of a fighter shadowboxing in the streets and in a boxing ring, headphones over hoodie quickly intercutting with flying pigeons and seagulls. The lyrical content is nothing short of the earlier-released “Hope” which touched on a friend’s death, explicitly implicating Fentanyl as the cause.

“What river runs deeper than this?/ Stamping on cigarettes, opening fists/ What river runs deeper than this? Biting off fingernails, breaking our wrists/ Breaking our wrists,” (Sandy) Alex G sings. “When the bomb dropped, I was 22/ Buried under black dirt, how about you?/ When the bomb dropped, I was 25/ Lying in the grass/ under tangerine sky.”

(Sandy_ Alex G has also announced an expansive starting March 30 at Cleveland, Ohio’s Grog Shop and running through May 3 at the 1904 Music Hall in Jacksonville, Florida. He’ll also be playing Coachella 2020 in April. Watch the full video above and in other music news, watch the trailer for the upcoming DJ Screw Biopic Series All Screwed Up.
