M83 – “Midnight City”

M83’s video aesthetic almost always concerns itself with children in some sort of existential plight–Not the ideal visual theme for elaboration upon music that comes off as effervescent and poppy, but it works.

With his latest video installment for the already well known track “Midnight City”, 5 children with telekinetic powers (a la John Carpenter’s “Village of the Damned”) get crazy and smash up a warehouse after escaping a secret medical testing facility.

If I were eight years old, had super powers, and was backed by a bangin’ soundtrack, I’d probably do the same.
