PORTALS. ALIENS. SPACE COPS. ELECTRO MUSIC. THE GALAXY COMES TO LIFE IN MUSCLE HAWK’S ELECTRIC LIGHT MUSIC VIDEO DEBUT.
A world inside a closet. A galaxy inside your world.
Our first music video, Electric Light was ambitious undertaking from the get go that asked an all-important question: what would an intergalactic dance party look like? Filled to the brim with references from some of cinema’s greatest space operas, and wearing its influences heartily on its sleeve, the music video is an over the top celebration of sci-fi and eighties influenced pulp.
The tale is that of a young girl who discovers a secret portal to another galaxy inside her brother’s closet. Following him through, she is whisked to a space station that forms a ring around its planet where the music throbs and the love flows. Quickly out of her element, she sets out to find him amongst the revelry, discovering him sandwiched between two alien babes. He sees her just in time, as the Space Police come crashing the party, sparking chaos and disarray. But will he be able to get them both back home in time?
With original costuming that drew influences from Mad Max, Mass Effect, and even The Mummy, the video also featured over a dozen SFX makeup creations by Chris Hanson. Fusing saturated space visuals, and the addictive beats of Muscle Hawk’s track Electric Light, the video is one of infectious appeal.
Just don’t tell mom about the portal in your closet.
