THE FUTURIST! heard this song at his place of business.
He had never head of Fitz and the Tantrums, but their sound reminded him of the music of the 1960s. It has that smoke-filled melancholy sound of darkened lounges and girls in slinky beaded dresses ... men in pale blue suits and dark ties... wearing really shiny black shoes with subtly patterned argyle socks ... and smoking cigarettes ... with half sipped drinks with swizzle sticks on those small circular tables with filled ash trays and cocktail napkins.
And get a load of the pulsating visuals in the music video that screams at you with the beautiful sad blues and passion alarm reds. It's like an emergency signal vibrating with this message:
"VIXEN IN SHIMMERY COCKTAIL DRESS NEEDS MORE BOOZE TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH SHE LOVES YOU JUST THIS ONE DARK SAD NIGHT WHILE YOU ARE TOTALLY BLITZED YOURSELF AND WILL HATE YOURSELF THE NEXT DAY."
THE FUTURIST! thinks guys singing in suits with skinny ties is always a good thing.
It's a primary color Noir-style visual cocktail that gives you a kick in the seat of your blue sharkskin suit..
