(Sandy) Alex G Shares Video for Alternate Version of “Bad Man,” Sets Spring 2020 Tour

Philly-based lo-fi indie musician (Sandy) Alex G is often said to have multiple personas embodied in his work—some saccharine and some sinister.

The multi-instrumentalist also makes the argument that his already-recorded songs can contain multitudes. A new music video for “Bad Man,” directed by frequent collaborator Zev Magasis, contains a totally alternate version of the song that’s exclusive to the video.

The video feels like a found home video VHS tape, with shaky shots of seagulls and a running man flickering across the screen.

Last September, (Sandy) Alex G released his sixth studio album, House of Sugar, followed by an extensive U.S. tour. Due to the tour’s success, (Sandy) Alex G announced that he would embark on a spring 2020 tour that will also feature a slew of other talented acts, including Empath, Stephen Malkmus and Waxahatchee among others.

You can listen to the original version of “Bad Man” and compare it to the new music video below. Further down, check out (Sandy) Alex G’s 2014 Daytrotter session and upcoming tour dates, including a stint at Coachella.
