Music Videos # 64

Battles - Tonto

With the hallucinating video for "Atlas" still in our mind, everyone's favourite math-rock band (i.e. Battles) release another breathtaking short-clip from this year's awesome album Mirrored, this time for song "Tonto". A collaboration with light artists UVA (United Visual Artists), the result looks so geometrically perfect that it totally suits their mutant approach to music, combining lighting games with the elaborated rhythmic sounds heard on the song. At the same time, the band keeps playing with self-absorbed precision on an abandoned field, while surrounded by this visual installment. And then the sun rises and it's early morning, but the magic keeps on happening. Beautiful.
