We are massive fans of Midnight Juggernauts (want the proof?), the wickedly brilliant Melbourne-based electro outfit, so we were pumped to see them enlisted by our friends at Sony to re-record their 2009 track, This New Technology, to promote their snazzy new XBA-4 headphones. That’s right: fat beats, a thumping bassline, grinding grooves, and headphones which blow it all up into a magnificent, scintillating sensory treat.
This video here makes me happy for several reasons: the tune is great, the boys are cute, the vocals and the groove are really my thing, and the video, directed by Lucinda Schreiber and Beatrice Pegard, simply rocks. It was shot frame by frame, then re-shot using over 2,000 printed pieces of paper.
Midnight Juggernauts are another awesome Australian band. There’s something amazing going on in the land of Oz, with Empire of the Sun, Pnau, and these guys. I really wish they were coming to London to brighten up my dark, mysterious winters. Come on boys, you know you wanna!
