The music of Sinkane starts a revolution in this vibrant and violent clip for his track “Runnin’.” The DFA Records artist celebrates the release of his debut LP Mars with his first official music video. In a quick succession of scenes you see a regime being overthrown in a bloody coup, an intense take on the funky, danceable song.
 
Mars is out this week, and the Sudanese-born Sinkane, aka Ahmed Gallab, is set to hit the road with Yeasayer, with whom he worked as a touring musician, and Toro Y Moi. Watch “Runnin’” and check out the tour dates below.
