Director Josef Kraska knows his 120 Minutes. His video for “Strawberry Skies,” Games’ Laurel Halo-guesting That We Can Play track, burrows into the ’80s at 3AM — a space Daniel Lopatin and Joel Ford inhabit regularly, at least in spirit — fixates on the song’s “call me up” line,” and stays there until you can almost smell the Aquanet.
Here’s a slightly darker, grimier remix by Glasgow’s Hudson Mohawke.
Nice, but I’m still partial to Gatekeeper’s “Strawberry Skies” strangulation.
