We’ve coincidentally been featuring a string of sci-fi
-related music videos as of late, but Metronomy’s music video for “I’m Aquarius”, directed by French director Edoud Salier
, is definitely the most polished of the bunch. Rolling with the punches of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joseph Mount’s use of astrological references galore, this music video is like a sci-fi book cover turned motion picture style. Retro spaceships float over spacescapes painted in bold strokes, until they finally touch down in a new land, not unlike a modern ancient Egypt, and timed perfectly for the song’s ending half, which worms out into ethereal spaces.
