Magic Wands' "Space" Is Our Music Video of the Day
Fittingly, the new video for Magic Wands' "Space," starts off with soaring, 80s-style electro, reminiscent of what you might hear before watching a light show at the planetarium. The drum machines and synths continue building tension as two figures emerge wearing medieval crowns, with the male actor gesturing like a possessed orchestral conductor. The rest of the video alternates between night shots, the characters illuminated in spotlights, strobes and what could pass for flashbulbs, and hazy, purple-y-lit daybreak clips. Though the twosome's serious expressions never cease, their costumes and gestures make the video feel like they've been playing a game of dress up in Andy Wahol's Factory before scampering outside to the woods.
