Let's Watch a Tanlines Video

Posted By on Thu, Mar 22, 2012 at 12:00 PM

Possibly because I am wildly gripped by musical nostalgia lately, I can't stop listening to the debut from Tanlines, which came out yesterday. Yes, there are weird seemingly Afropop influenced rhythms and modern dance flourishes, but in its essence, Mixed Emotions is a synthpop record full of hooks transported from an era when people cared about OMD and Talk Talk. It's so enjoyable and full of fun catchy hooks that I want to have some sort of hipster barbecue and play the disc on repeat.

Anyhow, there's a video for the second single, "All of Me", directed by Julian Barratt from weird British show The Mighty Boosh. I don't understand the video at all, but it's visually interesting and it has a Tanlines show in the background. Allow yourself some happiness and check it out.
