Young Galaxy – “Pretty Boy” Video

The Montreal band Young Galaxy worked with former Studio member and Balearic production don Dan Lissvik on their new album Ultramarine, and the end result just sparkles, so you might expect the album’s music videos to do the same. You would be wrong. In making his video for the gorgeous synthpop jam “Pretty Boy,” director Luke McCutcheon has made something simultaneously sweet and fucking creepy. In a dingy and snowy city, we see a love story unfold between two people with terrifying latex covering their faces: A blank-as-death woman and an artificially old man. Watch it below, and good luck figuring out what’s supposed to be going on.

Ultramarine is out today on Paper Bag, and check also Peaking Lights’ great remix of “Pretty Boy.”
