Exclusive music video: K.Flay's hook-filled 'Thicker Than Dust'

KFLAY

As big as hip-hop’s tent has gotten, Bay Area rapper K.Flay still stands out as something of an oddity: a Stanford double-major (psychology and sociology) who’s worked with Liam Howlett from ’90s electro-punks the Prodigy and toured with Icona Pop and Passion Pit.

After a stint on a major label, she’s gone independent for her new album Life as a Dog, which she crowdfunded through PledgeMusic. The album, out today, pairs spaced-out rap beats and chiming indie rock that K.Flay tops with her frequently tricky flows, making a chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter situation that should please rap-loving indie rockers, or the other way around.

After the jump, we have an exclusive first look at her new video for the uber-hooky single “Thicker Than Dust.”
