Connan Mockasin and MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden have shared "Bad Boys", one of multiple collaborations between the two for the Self Discovery For Social Survival film soundtrack.
Self Discovery For Social Survival is a new film collaboration between Mexican Summer and surf and outdoor brand Pilgrim Surf + Supply.
The movie is filmed in Mexico, the Maldives, and Iceland, and sees Allah Las, Connan Mockasin, Andrew VanWyngarden, travel alongside professional surfers Stephanie Gilmore, Creed McTaggart, Ryan Burch, and others.
Of the movie, director Chris Gentile says, "The idea was to send surfers and musicians off on these trips together. Get them out there amongst it—in the surf, in the afterglow of the surf, talking story at dinner, just all the great stuff that happens on a surf trip. Then, right after their trips, the musicians jump into the studio and compose based on their experiences. With their hair still wet, so to speak."
The first offering to be shared from the soundtrack is the woozy Mockasin and VanWyngarden collaboration, "Bad Boys".
