Is Tropical – The Greeks videoclip by Megaforce

opheliekauffmann_5

After a couple months of teasing us with clips, screen-tests and storyboards, legendary video interlopers Megaforce have finished their video treatment for our next single, The Greeks. Filmed in a sleepy French suburb in god-knows-where, and starring a group of the coolest kids in the cul-de-sac, The Greeks’ video reflects the song — it’s about everything, and kinda nothing, and being young, or something.

Part Rumblefish, part Die Hard, part Akira, we wanted to work together to create something both visually appealing and aesthetically relevant to the band. We like kids, we like gangs, we really like daydreaming and imagination; the video straddles the line between nostalgia and the visual death-porn of our generation – the action film. Don’t get carried away by politics – this is a straight-up kid brawl the way it played out in your head when you were stealing your mums mascara to be like Arnie in Predator. It isn’t a shocking rebuke to our drama queen, populist news culture either – just naive, blissful shoot-yr-mate until he’s definitely dead war-games – the way you wish it still could be.

When we asked MEGAFORCE how they came up with the concept, they simply answered : “we’ve been wanting to make such a video since the age of 6 !”

[...] Först ut är bandet IS TROPICAL med låten THE GREEKS. IS TROPICAL är ytterligare ett band som Kitsune tagit under sina vingar.

[...] Hey, this is a short but good post. I was on facebook and noticed a new song by BeatauCue that was up on youtube. I decided to check it out and was pleasantly surprised. When I saw the related videos I noticed an interesting thumbnail. Intrigued, I clicked on it and found one of the best new music videos I’ve seen in a while. The Greeks, by “Is Tropical,” is one hell of a good song. It’s a mix between alternative rock and electronic music. And the music video, oh sweet jesus that music video is very well done. You can also download the single + a remix for free here. [...]
