Rey Pila – Fire Away Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Back in July we premiered the Julian Casablancas-produced “Fire Away” from Mexican rock band Rey Pila’s Cult Records debut album The Future Sugar. Today we share the accompanying music video, which is in-keeping with the track’s synth-heavy New Wave vibes. The entire video is pixellated, rendering the entire band and their environment into 8-bit arcade game mode. You follow the band as a player in a first-person car-racing game, advancing through levels and trying not to get shot down by rogue helicopters and weird alien-type-looking-thingies. The boss battle sees you fighting a really terrifying giant robotic tarantula, and then its head explodes. Wonderful stuff. Watch below.
