Remember Wasilla, Alaska? Yep, it’s the hometown of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. But indie-rock quartet Portugal. The Man also call the city home — and their last album, 2008’s Censored Colors, is a SPIN.com favorite.

The band, who are currently in the studio working on their next record, garnered loads of attention with Colors‘ fusion of multi-movement prog-rock and unforgettable melodies. “And I” is one of the album’s best tracks — and you can watch exclusive video of Portugal. The Man playing it on the streets of Brooklyn!

Below, check out footage of the boys performing the tune with a toy piano and acoustic guitars. Then leave your thoughts in the comment section.
