Phoenix – “Trying To Be Cool”

I’m sort of fascinated with this video. It’s this weird assemblage of weird things happening, and it leans less into the 1970s Eurocinema look that CANADA’s other work does (I don’t mind it, but I prefer when they do things like Tame Impala’s “The Less I Know The Better“). There’s something about controlled chaos going on here that I find visually and formally fascinating, and the culmination of bodies-as-machines choreography at the end is just beautiful. A good music video.
