Video of The Day: The Beat Escape
There's something more than a little hypnotic about the pulsations in The Beat Escape's "Moon In Aquarius." The Montreal duo's moody undulations definitely reference 1980s Factory Records beats and angles and certain sounds from that blackest of black comedy Heathers, while hushed vocals add to a sense of heightened awareness.
The video is a well-styled nod to the 80s, too, a sort of interior still life.
The Beat Escape's forthcoming record, on which you can find the excellent "Moon In Aquarius," Life Is Short The Answer's Long is released April 27 on Bella Union.
