Soul Glo released one of the year's best albums with Diaspora Problems, they've made some of the year's best music videos, and they've also been touring and putting on some killer live shows. Now they've shared a taste of their live show in the form of a pro-shot live video for "Thumbsucker." Like their music videos, it was directed by Dan White x $$$NICCA (and one of the camera operators was hate5six's Sunny Singh), and it finds the band joined by a horn section, allowing them to fully recreate the vibe of the album version. Check it out below. About this song in particular, vocalist Pierce Jordan says:

[Diaspora Problems] are ruminations on my lifelong (over)sensitivity emotionally and how I, throughout my childhood, compensated for it. Like anyone my age, I was trying to fit into society and culture of the 90’s/2000’s in a family who was raised between the 40’s and 70’s. The time and places a person comes up in obviously shape who a person becomes, good, bad, and ugly, better or worse. ‘Thumbsucker’ is basically the result of a series of ‘aha!’ moments from introspection and therapy.

Soul Glo have more dates coming up, including a return to NYC for Pitchfork's show at Knockdown Center on August 21 with Big Freedia, Dawn Richard, Hurray for the Riff Raff, billy woods, Mega Bog, Water from Your Eyes, Katie Alice Greer, and Jane Remover (tickets).
