Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros Inspire Dancers in ‘Man on Fire’ Video
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros may start a new dance craze with the music video for their latest single, ‘Man on Fire.’ The clip showcases the impressive body rockin’ skills of various dance groups throughout New York City.
‘Man on Fire’ was directed by Brady Corbet and was shot from May 12-14. It features the New York City Ballet, NY Cheer Allstars, National Double Dutch League, Soul Steps and Brooklyn Divas, as well as choreographers, coaches, and relatives of the many performers. In our opinion, the double dutch demonstrations were the most impressive of the bunch.
‘Man on Fire’ is the lead single from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ new album ‘Here,’ which was released earlier this week. It’s the second full-length from the band, following 2009’s ‘Up From Below.’ Frontman Alex Ebert says the group has grown a little wiser with ‘Here’ since their debut.
“The only thing I’d say is that the first album felt like it was reaching toward somewhere, and [‘Here’] feels like it’s speaking from somewhere,” Ebert tells Fuse. “So it’s a little less giddy and a little less desperate and reaching and a bit more meditative and reflective. But otherwise I’d say it’s a continuation of the path we’ve been on in a quite linear way. At least for me, because I’ve been in it. For others it might be a little jarring.”
