Lunch Break: Juveniles, “Fantasy”

I went to film school, so I know where most of the cuts in this video come from.

In the 1980s I was in my 20s, mostly, so I know where most of this New Wave/Disco hybrid comes from.

As a band name Juveniles seems pretty great, no matter what age.

And I bumped into this while listening to the new Belle and Sebastian single, which explores similar sonic ground. Belle and Sebastian’s tune is richer, but it doesn’t have these gals, the director’s playful prudity, and the sex-role play (or disambiguation, if you prefer) of this video.

Nicely done, Juveniles. But next time we want newer music. (Or as Steve might say, music that doesn’t suck.)
