Zoo Brother

Zoo Brother is the Chicago-based project of William Karmis, who drenches Animal Collective-style twinkle-layers in rough, clanky beats and peeled-apart vocals. His new EP, Gemini Girl, was released on Bandcamp last Friday, and today CMJ is premiering a video for the album single, Psychic Whatever, featuring fellow Chi-towner Atlas Murphy.
The textured music box track is paired with footage of various people skateboarding through Chicago, in parking lots, on sidewalks and in front of schools. It’s charmingly homemade, and any former teen rebel will feel a fond twinge of nostalgia. Check out the video below.
