Follower Feature: Comett – “Once Upon a Time/City of Lights”

Even though it may look like it, this was not directed by Tim Burton.

The Les lapins de l’espace directed Nightmare Before Christmas-esque video for French indie electro outfit Comett has attracted quite a bit of attention, and rightly so.  The stop-motion animation is not only aesthetically impressive, but the TV-head citizens of this futuristic city are a pretty accurate reflection of today’s society. Welcome to the world of techno-drones.  Now I’m certainly not saying that any of you, faithful Telescopers, are techno-drones in any way, shape or form, but Comett does raise an interesting point.

If you like the single, you can download it for a small fee here.  I think now would be the perfect time to cue the impromptu dance sequence.
