Video: Laurel Halo "Metal Confection"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Brooklyn-based leftfield-pop crooner Laurel Halo sent over this video for a cut from her King Felix EP, released last year on Hippos in Tanks. While Halo's preciously spooky number "Machine Confection" rises and falls along with her operatic singing voice, archaic computer graphics twist and turn, looking like the animator of Lawnmower Man took a swing at making his own iTunes visualizer. Both the music and the images harken back to a time when computers were basically exotic luxury items, so, in that sense, there's an obvious connection. Other than that, director Josef Kraska just gave "Machine Confection" a pleasant string of obscure imagery that seems a bit alien for its lack of context.
