Small Black – “Real People” (Feat. Frankie Rose) Video

By Tom Breihan / March 25, 2014

New York synthpoppers Small Black will release their new EP Real People next week, and the title track, like first single “Lines Of Latitude,” has backing vocals from fellow starry-eyed synthpopper Frankie Rose. The new “Real People” video, from director Nick Bentgen, doesn’t have any particular story, or at least it doesn’t have one that I can follow, but it’s heavy on ’80s B-movie aliens-are-among-us iconography. The clip is beautifully photographed, with atmosphere for days. And if it turned out that it was nothing but out-of-context clips from a European thriller, I would absolutely watch that movie. Check it out below.

Real People is out 4/1 on Jagjaguwar.
