Lawrence, Kansas’ self-described “time wave space punk” duo Arc Flash is hitting the road in support of the release of their brand new album Carbon Copy, which makes its debut today. In honor of the occasion, we have the exclusive premiere of their new video for “Future”.
You know you’re in for a ride when the first scene of a video is a tape being inserted into a VHS player… by someone wearing rubber gloves. Then, with frantic instrumentals and an intense and exhilarating amount of vocal reverb, we are brought into a room full of old TVs. As the majority of the television sets broadcast static, we are thrown into the largely purple world of a slightly nostalgic sound and a hip swaying beat. But hold on until the end, when skiing masks make an appearance and entertaining confusion ensues.
It’s clear from this video that these guys know how to party. So get out to one of their upcoming shows, and be sure to check out the new record!
