When Saints Go Machine

The new video by Danish electro-pop quartet When Saints Go Machine — for the dreamy, slow-burning, dance hymn “System Of Unlimited Love” on their new record, Infinity Pool — is probably not safe for work. But hey, it’s on YouTube — so it’s definitely art, right?

In any case, it’s a stunning and beautifully human clip for a truly otherworldly song. Erotic dancers slither around poles in a dark room, almost coordinated, carefully off-time; lazy dance-lights splash around the women’s bodies; and as the song drifts into its quiet, ballad-like outro, they glower at the camera in a deadpan and move slowly, like late night ballerinas.

Looks like art after all. Watch it now. (Or, really, don’t watch it at work).

Infinity Pool is out now on Parlophone and !K7.
