This Is Our Jam Premieres: PYYRAMIDS, "Do You Think You're Enough"

PYYRAMIDS
PYYRAMIDS is the new project from Tim Nordwind of indie rock Internet sensations OK Go, along with Drea Smith from electro-pop act He Say/She Say. "Do You Think You're Enough" — whose visual accompaniment we're happy to premiere — features aggressive vocals from Smith, driven by raw post-punk guitar. If you're expecting some sort of riff on OK Go's famously inventive Rube Goldberg videos, you're here for the wrong band. Instead, "Do You Think You're Enough" captures PYYRAMIDS' angular (no pun intended) rhythms with frenetic, intoxicating imagery of the band performing a bleary live set. No gimmicks: just rock 'n roll.

According to Nordwind:
"PYYRAMIDS originally started as a studio project, but this year we're stepping out of the studio and into a live space. We worked with our dear friend and director Michelle Peerali to document the process of performing these songs in real time. As a result, Michelle not only helped capture the excitement of what it's like to perform, but was able to help preserve, visually, the psychedelia and mystery behind the music."
PYYRAMIDS will be playing a bunch of shows at SXSW next week, and you can keep track of the band using the hashtag #pyyramidsliveatsxsw (dates below). The band's debut LP, Brightest Darkest Day, is available April 9. Check out the clip here:
