VIDEO: An Ode to New York Dancers

I definitely did not expect this to be the official music video of whimsical folk group Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. But here, the extremes seem to fit perfectly — urban visuals of movement and self-expression complimenting the band’s countryside sound. For the video “Man on Fire”, the band enlists  jump ropers, cheerleaders, gymnasts and even the New York City Ballet…consequently creating a love letter to New York City dancers.

“Man on Fire” is on Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ latest album which you can download here.
