Remember the first time you watched 2001: A Space Odyssey
and how the "Beyond the Infinite" section made absolutely zero sense, and it seemed like an excuse for hippies to drop acid and just watch the psychedelic visuals? It's not necessarily a criticism, but you're likely to get the same reaction from the newest music video from British post-punk band the Horrors
. "Changing the Rain" is pretty conventional post-punk that should bring to mind the Smiths and the Cure, but it's animated space-themed video inhabits the same world as one of Hunter S. Thompsons's acid-nightmares from Fear and Loathing
. There's even a shout-out to 2001
when one of the monoliths appear. Don't watch if you're allergic to weird.
