Big Black Delta — a.k.a. Jonathan Bates, ex-frontman for Mellowdrone and former member of M83's touring band — danced through a digital grid in the video for "Side of the Road" earlier this year, and now the electronic expert has shared a companion clip. The short promotes "Money Rain Down," the next single from Big Black Delta's recently released self-titled debut album; this time around, Bates is mostly still, sitting in the middle of a large soundstage wearing his trademark sci-fi specs. While the Venezuelan native deadpans lyrics into the camera, a bevy of backup dancers shimmy, twirl, and strut around him, all while wearing green-screen suits. Grab BBD's first full-length over at iTunes.
