Premiere: Watch Antonionian's Entrancing New Video for "Into the Night"

Posted By on Thu, Jun 9, 2011 at 11:14 AM


You can feel the Prince vibes oozing out of "Into the Night" -- easily our favorite cut from Antonionian's self-titled Anticon debut, out last year. Yet somehow Oakland's Jordan Dalrymple winds a little teutonic synth-pop around those obvious phat funk grooves and pinchy vocals, and the result is a pretty sweet mesh of the familiar and the fresh.

Here we've got the first look at the new, Terri Loewenthal-directed clip for "Into the Night," which is, by our interpetation, an eerie demonstration of the life-giving power of a delicious groove. Maybe we saw this movie too many times, but there's a definite Ring quality to this video as well, which is cool. Watch as Antonionian's jam brings one girl's life into full color, after the jump.

Now viddy this:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
