Australian experimental musician Kirin J Callinan released a new album, Bravado, back in June via Terrible Records. Now he’s shared a video for “Big Enough.” Danny Cohen directed the clip, which takes Callinan to the old west. He’s joined by fellow Aussie Alex Cameron, who also sings on the song, and they play two competing cowboys. World champion whistler Molly Lewis is on board to, as does popular Australian singer Jimmy Barnes, who screams from the clouds. Watch it below, followed by his upcoming tour dates.

Pick up Under the Radar‘s Summer 2017 print issue to read our exclusive interview with Kirin J Callinan and to see our photo-shoot with him as he was getting a shave and a haircut at a Washington DC barbershop.

Previously Callinan shared the slightly NSFW and highly amusing Cuba-shot video for “S.A.D.” (which stands for “Song About Drugs”). He also shared the album’s title track, a funny mockumentary video for Bravado track “Telling Me This,” and two more songs from the album, “Down 2 Hang,” which features James Chance, and “Living Each Day,” which features Connan Mockasin, as well as a video for “Living Each Day.”

Bravado features a slew of other special guests, including Weyes Blood, Mac DeMarco, Owen Pallett, Sean Nicholas Savage, Jorge Elbrecht, and others. The “Telling Me This” mockumentary was a Behind the Music style spoof called Off the Record that featured Callinan talking about the song, along with fellow musicians, including DeMarco, Mark Ronson, Weyes Blood, Jack Black, Jay Watson (Tame Impala, Gum, POND), Sebastien Teller, Ladyhawke, and others. Callinan’s debut album, Embracism, came out in 2013 and in 2015 he released a video for a new song featuring Connan Mockasin, “The Teacher,” which isn’t featured on the new album.
