New Music: Solar Year- Magic Idea + Music Video
Jamie Harley might be the best music video director going these days. The man has worked extensively with bands like Memoryhouse, How to Dress Well, Twin Shadow and Keep Shelly In Athens, making some of the most brilliant cutting edge music videos from the last few years. Here he takes slow motion visuals from a music festival, with a sea of thousands of ecstatic fans, and backs it with the laid back heavenly synths of Montreal's Solar Years' track "Magic Idea". Somehow the visuals and audio create a perfect symmetry that will leave the viewer in hypnotic euphoria.
For fans of Grimes, Youth Lagoon, Jacques Green.
