LAZY SCORSESE MAKE LOVE ON THE ASTRAL PLANE IN THIS WEEK'S TOP 5 MN MUSIC VIDEOS
ASTRONOMIQUE - 'MIMIC FORMS'
On Friday, synthpop four-piece Astronomique released 'Mimic Forms,' and after a weekend of buzz, they’re back with a kitsch-fest of a video to accompany that new single. Playing like an ‘80s fantasy epic dunked in colored Easter egg vinegar, the video for “Mimic Forms” has a nostalgic charm and shows the band’s playful side.
Logan Andra Fongemie’s faraway voice drifts through the technological chaos and future-punk sets, deepening the unreality of the visuals, while some campy acting from the rest of the band keeps things from being too disorienting. The real-life band celebrates the single release on Thursday night at Icehouse along with Beasthead and StoLyette.
