Megaforce have done it again with the hilarious CGI porn fantasy vid for Is Tropical’s new single ‘Dancing Anymore’ . Youtube have taken it down already, but the mighty Vimeo still have it. At least for now. Enjoy! Is Tropical’s new album ‘I’m Leaving’ is out on May 20th
Sorry, about the mass of videos recently, but there’s a lot of good videos around at the moment.
Justice – Civilization
…I have no clue what this video is about. I do know that it’s directed by Edouard Salier and that the Civlization EP will be released on June 6th and will feature remixes from Mr Oizo and The Fucking Champs
Is Tropical – The Greeks
The Megaforce video for Is Tropical is ace and it’s the video Megaforce have wanted to make since ‘the age of 6’. It’s certainly something I’ve never seen before. Good job, Megaforce!
The launch parties for the album ‘Native to’ are :
Point Ephémère, Paris on 8th June – buy your tickets here
XOYO, London with Yuksek, Jupiter and Icona Pop on 17th June – buy your tickets here
Ahead of the release of their debut album, Native To, on June 13th Is Tropical are letting go a free download of lead single ‘The Greeks’ and a gratis remix download of it from Moonlight Matters. The remix funks up the original nicely, with some proper swing your pants geetar, ebbing into the ‘Give it away’ vocal before chopping the bouzouki section into a frantic Vanessa Mae-esque string solo. Lovely rework, get it below.

Production room somewhere. Megaforce and Goose are sitting round a table and Megaforce are about to pitch a new video idea.
Megaforce – So, right the guy’s climbing up a rock face, with some other guys, ok? And he falls, tired. The other guys take off and when the guy looks up they’ve gone. He carries on climbing and then hands smash out of the rock face and try to grab him…
Goose – Right, so these hands, whose are they?
Megaforce – …they belong to the eye.
Goose – The eye?
Megaforce – He smashes it with a rock.
Goose – Smashes the eye with a rock? Why?
Megaforce – It explodes (simulates explosion with hands). And then the hands that have been holding the guy back help him climb the rest of the way up the rock face.
Goose -…cool. Good…How does it end? Whats at the top of the rock face?
Megaforce – The clip ends with the guy…floating, amongst the brooding clouds…
Goose – …?
Megaforce – Did I mention that we shoot arrows at the guy and that the eye, right, it turns into a mouth?
Goose…the songs going to carry this, isn’t it?
Megaforce – It is the song! Can’t stop…him now. Yeah?
Goose – It’s a metaphor then?
Megaforce – (pleased) Voila!
