Video Vixens: The Golden Awesome

Starting as inauspiciously as it did, today was the perfect day to get an email bringing to my attention a new video from some of my favorite Kiwis, The Golden Awesome. Instant day saver! The video in question is a clip for another killer song from the band's absolutely killer LP, Autumn. Which, of course, you should own by now.

"Astronomy" is the lucky song of which I speak, and the video concept, while not exactly groundbreaking, somehow feels just right for accompanying the haunting, steady thrum of the song. The video sees the band lined up against an array of changing backdrops, from a red curtain to a beautiful, cold seaside setting (my favorite). And the simple act of the band playing as the scenes change just really works. This was definitely an unexpected treat on this dismal Tuesday.
