Thundercat – “Them Changes” (Video)

Every time Thundercat rolls out a new video, it always seems like the most Thundercattiest thing he could do. It seems entirely possible for Steven Bruner to end up victorious in a duel with the prize being the use of his continued limbs to hawk katanas on a shopping network. No, that sentence doesn’t make sense, all up until it does, just like Thundercat. Check out the video for “Them Changes” off the new EP, The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam, directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada all about indulging its subject and including off the wall symbolism about heartbreak after the jump.
