Watch San Holo Team Up with American Football’s Mike Kinsella for an Acoustic Performance of “thoughts and chemicals”

The song comes from San Holo’s latest album bb u ok?

Dutch DJ San Holo just released his album bb u ok? a few months ago. It included a diverse set of collaborators, including Bipolar Sunshine, Chet Faker, Weezer, and American Football. The latter was featured on a moving single called “thoughts and chemicals,” which had Mike Kinsella’s vocals layered in decadent waves. Now, San Holo and Kinsella are sharing a live performance of “thoughts and chemicals” that finds the song in raw form.

“Working with Mike and the American Football guys was very special to me,” San Holo says. “I respect how open they were to the idea of working together and pursuing such a unique collaboration. I tend not to think in ‘genres’ too much and writing this record with Mike felt like he was the same way. It really was just two musicians finding a connection and creating something special together. Getting to spend another day with Mike in Chicago to shoot a video as well was just another beautiful moment on top of that!”
