See Young Galaxy’s GIF-tastic, ’90s-Inspired ‘Fall for You’ Video
Canuck synth-poppers dropped 'Ultramarine' April 23
Someone alert the #seapunks — Young Galaxy has incorporated ’90s Internet-inspired imagery into their latest music video. “Fall for You” hails from the Montreal synth-pop posse’s latest album Ultramarine and offers a breezy danceable extraction/abstraction of world rhythms and bright melodies. There’s a little Talking Heads in the mix, and perhaps a touch of YACHT in the lyrics, and the entire thing is well complemented by the Nic Hamilton-directed clip above. Incorporating GIF-crisp 3-D art — liquid balloons, waving ribbons, pin impressions — and Body Worlds-reminiscent dissections, the video travels to the past to bring “futuristic” concepts into the present. Also, it works quite well as the unofficial sequel to Wild Nothing’s very ’80s “A Dancing Shell” animation.
Ultramarine came out April 23 on Paper Bag Records and was made with electronic producer Dan Lissvik in Gothenburg, Sweden.
