I Fink U Freeky

Song: I Fink U Freeky
Artist: Die Antwoord
Album: Ten$ion

Die Antwoord are a South African hip hop/rave duo whom were on Interscope for their debut album "$O$," but left after being asked to open for Lady Gaga on her current tour which they declined, and a request to make their sound more commercial from the label.  Earlier this year they released their second album "Ten$ion" on an indie label and just released a new video for current single "Fatty Boom Boom" which features an odd, quite nauseating diss to Gaga that's not all that funny, insightful, or interesting really...

But... I got watching more of their videos and they are nothing if not attention grabbing.  Musically I'm not 100% sure I'm enjoying them... but there is something about them that's quite intriguing   While it taints them a bit to have to resort to slagging Gaga to get some attention, it also worked.

"Ten$ion" is an aural assault of a listen, quite vulgar and aggressive... but quite melodic at the same time.  Their "voices" are high-pitched and more than border on annoying... but again, there's something there.

I'm really digging "I Fink U Freeky" the best, but also dig "Baby's on Fire."  Check them out below... their videos are really something else, Gaga shade aside.  Start with the video that is sure to get them even more attention, but watch the rest...  W T F???
