Video: Plaid "At Last"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Cute is not a word that is often used to described veteran UK duo Plaid, but this animated clip for "At Last," a poppy, synth-filled number from the Scintilli LP, is pretty darn adorable. Even as the clip seemingly spins a tale of misery, alienation, and exploitation in the face of widespread industrialization—hopefully we're not reading too much into this—the perky creatures that populate the video are inexplicably charming. Scintilli is out now on Warp, and the Plaid boys have been busy spreading the word, dropping mixes for both Altered Zones and FACT last week. Hopefully, they'll also find the time to commission another cute video or two in the months ahead.
