Under the Influence of Giants – “In the Clouds”

Before there was AWOLNATION, there was Under the Influence of Giants. Personally, I prefer the first generation of this band, although AWOLNATION’s “Sail” does provide the perfect soundtrack to the best cat video ever. Watch it here; you’ll see what I mean.

The premise for “In the Clouds” is a simple one: conservative family depicted in black and white ultimately joins the party people next door (depicted in colour, of course), by breaking down the separating wall à la the “Walk This Way” video by Aerosmith and Run DMC. I’d find it difficult to finish my dinner if there was a concert happening next door too.

The jury’s still out on lead singer Aaron Bruno’s choice of a tight scoop-neck shirt and turquoise scarf.
