Four Fists (Astronautalis & P.O.S) Share New Video for "6666"
The sun ain't set on Four Fists yet, that's for sure.
This past October, two of Minneapolis' most stylistically fearless artists, Astronautalis and P.O.S, delivered on a five-year promise to release the debut album from their collective project, Four Fists. Available now on Doomtree Records, 6666 is booming with a relentless energy, but the kind that has a greater purpose to it, too. Today, the duo release a new video for the album's title track along with an interview on Forbes.com.
"6666" is one of those rare circumstances where everything came together exactly as planned. With a beat by letmode that’s as catchy as the hook itself, this is the kind of track that defines a record, and like all the struggle it took to get there was worth it after all.
“Often times, you have an idea in your brain that you so desperately want to become a song,” explains Andy Bothwell, a rapper better known as Astronautalis. “When it works, it feels like actual magic. This time… it worked.”
Stef Alexander and Andy Bothwell, respectively known as P.O.S and Astronautalis, have been making guest appearances on each other’s records for over 10 years, and date their friendship back even further. That makes a collaborative project like Four Fists both inevitable and necessary at the same time: it’s a team-up that simultaneously inhabits the worlds of hip-hop and indie-punk in its own unique way.
