The New Pornographers – “Up In The Dark” Video

It’ll be hard to top the Tom Scharpling-directed clip for “News,” but the New Pornographers take it super sci-fi in the animated clip for “Up In The Dark,” which definitely involves interstellar travel, ominous button pressing, and some rather substantial space cargo. At first, I thought the space crew was gonna go all “Alderaan” on the planet in question, but turns out there’s a twist I wasn’t anticipating. A heart-warming twist.

Together is out now on Matador.

  1. Cute, but wouldn’t that process essentially stop gravity on the one planet, causing its atmosphere to be dissipate, killing the inhabitants? And completely screw up the orbit of the other planet, with unknown and possibly fatal consequences? Just playing devil’s advocate here.
