Shot entirely on Zoom, “Phenom” takes the cake for most clever video music made in isolation.

If isolation has taught us anything, it’s that music videos don’t always require big budgets. Over the last couple of months, musos have found ingenious ways to craft new videos – collaging old footage and singing karaoke-style into their phone, for example. But look, if we’re being honest, there is one made-in-isolation music video that takes the cake: that video is “Phenom”, by long running Oakland band Thao & The Get Down Stay Down. Filmed entirely on Zoom, it’s a rollercoaster ride of dissonant chords and clever dance moves. Buckle up and give it a spin below.
