BROCKHAMPTON have just released their newest music video, with the clip being filmed on the streets of Melbourne.

If you’re not familiar with BROCKHAMPTON, they’re one of the world’s most exciting hip-hop collectives, and describe themselves as the “best boy band since One Direction”. Needless to say, they’re well and truly something else.

Currently in the country for the 2018 Listen Out festival, the group played their first Aussie headline show in Melbourne last night. However, it turns out that the group had been pretty busy beforehand.

With the group’s most recent album, iridescence, being released on Friday, the group are hard at work delivering a number of music videos. So, with the group far away from their home in the US, they decided to take to the streets of Melbourne to film the clip for ‘SAN MARCOS’.

Filmed near the corner of Bourke Street and Russell Street in the Melbourne CBD, the clip features Kevin Abstract (who also directed the clip), Matt Champion, bearface, Joba, Don McLennon, and Merlyn Wood performing the track as they wander around near the local Hungry Jacks.

The group also managed to recruit a number of Aussie fans to appear in the clip, taking over the role of the London Community Gospel Choir that performs on the studio version of the track.

The whole thing was reportedly shot in an hour yesterday, meaning that it was over before anyone had a clue that an international hip-hop collective was in the middle of making their latest video.

BROCKHAMPTON are also set to premiere their The Longest Summer In America with a screening in Sydney tomorrow night. With the band performing a headline show at the Enmore Theatre tonight, and a few days off before their Listen Out performance, who knows how any videos they might film when they hit the streets of Sydney.
