Caviar's Jorma Taccone directs Electric Guest's debut video, American Daydream.
Press Release by Caviar:
Electric Guest rocks out the "American Daydream" in their debut video which dropped earlier this week. The electro-mellow-pop video features the duo, fronted by Asa Taccone, best known for his work on The Lonely Island favorites "Motherlover," "Natalie Raps" and "Dick in a Box," among others. The video was directed by Jorma Taccone (SNL, The Lonely Island, MacGruber) -- who also happens to be Asa's older bro -- and was produced by Caviar in Los Angeles.
Despite their relative anonymity within the mainstream music scene, Electric Guest has built a name for themselves through their electric-bluesy rhythms and dynamic collaborations with some of the best in the business. They are currently managed by Monotone Inc. (Jack White, Cold War Kids, The Shins), and their debut release was produced by Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) of Broken Bells, Gnarls Barkley, and Rome fame. With songs like "American Daydream," Electric Guest is one to invite home.
