Music video: Sad Eyes by Crystal Castles

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Music on Monday 11 February 2013

Flashing lights, neon colors, flying sparks, and unnerving blank masks. Crystal Castles never ceases to deliver subtly twisted imagery that makes me want to cry and dance at the same time. Something about the dark, moody grunge of it is very appealing as the scenes flip back and forth. I feel like I’m watching someone’s […]

Bridget Barnett Contributor

By Bridget Barnett in Video on Friday 24 August 2012

Twin Shadow’s video for Five Seconds, a track from George Lewis Jr. and band’s new record, Confess is pretty epic. Not only is the song worthy of putting on repeat, but the video (directed by Keith Musil, with the story told my Lewis himself) features badass gangs, motorcycle stunts, amazing outfits, and heroic fight scenes.
