WATCH: Iggy Pop Features Mac DeMarco’s “Lizard Man” in “Sonali” Video
DeMarco directed the surreal clip, which stars his girlfriend Kiera McNally as “Lizard Woman.”
Mac DeMarco has crashed the Iggy Pop universe. DeMarco directed Pop’s latest visual, “Sonali,” taken from the punk icon’s latest long-player, Free. In the video, DeMarco brings back the Lizard Man from his own “Nowhere Man” vid, a track off Mac’s album Here Comes the Cowboy released earlier this year.
Here, Lizard Man (this time played by musician Tommy Midnight) is getting ready for a date night with a Lizard Woman love interest, portrayed by Kiera McNally (DeMarco’s girlfriend). The surreal and brightly-colored clip sets an ironic tone for the moody, melancholy track, with Pop’s distinctive voice rolling like a fog across a stuttering rhythm. The whole thing is highlighted by a lovely horn solo performed by Lizard Man himself from a convertible parked on an LA street. Watch it below.
