Watch Fol Chen’s Otherworldly ‘200 Words’ Clip
The L.A. outfit's latest, 'The False Alarms,' is due March 19 on Asthmatic Kitty
After nearly three years of carefully cultivated anonymity, L.A. synth-pop act Fol Chen is poised for an unveiling. In this new clip for the heady, bass-heavy “200 Words,” Sinosa Loa — who joined the group in 2010 as a keyboardist and vocalist and handles lead vocals here — floats her way through both non-space and outer space, accompanied by menacing flares, satellites, and an astronaut with unclear intentions. Loa’s layered vocals have this way of conjuring the otherworldly — now Fol Chen have a visual to match exactly that.
