Published Sep 12, 2013Organ-and-drums ensemble Quasi are back with another video for their impending Mole City LP, this time with a vintage visual montage for the album's "See You on Mars."
While the "You Can Stay But You Gotta Go" video found the band rummaging through a bunch of goofy get-ups, this latest clip seems more content to display old aerobics footage, the hammy dance routine of a big costumed porker, monochromatic Lite-Brite patterns and cartoon clips. The back half gets colourized with images of busy city streets, robot demos and dolphin swim teams.
As for the song, it's vintage Quasi, by which we mean Sam Coomes distorted organ melodies and high-rising vocals are soaring above the deft drum-pounding of Janet Weiss. A wonky honky-tonk thrown into the mix too, and you can let it all seep in by watching the video below.
As previously reported, Mole City drops October 1 through Kill Rock Stars.
