Earlier this week we premiered our newest IC exclusive music video, “Must Be Tiring” by Ralph Cola. Hailing from Coventry, England, Cola makes interesting connections between jazz, funk and lounge-appropriate prog rock. The closest available reference point might be Chaz Bundick’s early output as Toro Y Moi (hear it on his newest album Live From Trona), but Cola’s droll, half-hearted musings (“Watching TV/ Doing nothing”) place “Must Be Tiring” in a very different realm. Watch the music video for the track above, which features a montage of our frontman on rooftops, working on abstract paintings and chilling in fields of grass.
Stream the single and its B-side below, released in January on Little L Records.
