Video: Collarbones – Turning

Nup. Fuck off. How can something this fucking brilliant exist in the vacuum of time and space. Collarbones are simply too genius to grace us with their prescence. Honestly, it’s not really fair on them that they have to exist on the same city, nay the same world, as Soundly Sounds. If you looked up juxtaposition in the dictionary you would see a infographic saying: Collarbones > Earth.

This all comes to a head in the video for their latest masterpiece “Turning”. Not only does it feature the glorious talents of Matt Banham (of Matt Banham’s Jokes Internet f@me) Marcus Thaine (ultra cool dude at Siberia Records) Doug and Russell from FISHING and a host of others, doing their best Gordon Gecko x a Reddit Forum x Swag impressions, but SPOD (Yes, THE SPOD) took care of doing art installations/dance choreography. Prepare your mind to go on a psychedelic trip with Marcus Whale and Travis Cook as your sonic guides, refreshing your eyeball’s taste buds with a gory, seizure-inducing plethora of images. It’s like Beyonce took acid at a Marrickville warehouse party and her mind’s eye was turned into a music video.

Flurries of the Matrix, rotating chairs of vaguely disappointed looking heroes of Sydney, and a weird adoration with a Chinese vase are all teh status quo of what is the greatest video of the decade. Throw all of that next to a constantly revolving orgasm of outfits from cyclist chic to twerking-man-wrapped-in-silver, and you’ve got something of jilting beauty that will probably never be matched.
