Boy does Thunderheist (MySpace) remind me of last yearâ€™s hyped up Simian Mobile Disco. But hypeâ€™s like that; it creates similar bands doing similar things and â€œJerk Itâ€ may fit that moldâ€¦ slightly. But boy is it a catchy song!
In â€œJerk Itâ€, Thunderheist dives headlong into electro-hip-hop and the video is filled with the same super-dance-y sexuality of the music. Like the song, the videoâ€™s sexual energy is something that is impossible to ignore.
Remember that video for Simian Mobile Discoâ€™s â€œHustlerâ€? You know, that one where all the hot ladies in bikinis stuff their faces with dessert foods and end up one hot mess? Yeah, while that one tops the charts in humor, this one is so much better.
In the video for â€œJerk Itâ€, Thunderheist has basically created hipster porn. And itâ€™s fucking hot!
The bant includes two electro-geniuses, Isisâ€”â€œNigerian-born, Canadian-raised,â€ according to the bandâ€™s bioâ€”on the mic and DJing by Grahmzilla. Iâ€™ve also included the mp3 of â€œJerk Itâ€ below.
