VIDEO: GAMES - Strawberry Skies

I love that GAMES' videos look so much like fan-videos in their roughness and dusty archive finish; but they're clearly not, posessed of just a little too much knowing, pefectly imbued with the same sense of nostalgia fetishism as the music, and the same subtle twists of editing and sleight of hand that make them such a compelling band.  This track especially, with Laurel Halo's vocals draped seductively across a song that slinks off into a teasing fade-out, like the girl you had your eye on at the school disco leaving too soon because her dad came to pick her up early. Inspired track and an equally inspired video to go with.
