Wrathschild’s cooked up something truly magical with “Fall Into Love.”
Are you sitting? Good, because Wrathschild just dropped their debut video for “Fall Into Love,” a track we’ve already shortlisted for 2014 Song of the Summer status. Anyone else mad that it’s only April right now? Legit furious with the concept of “months” as a whole, and we’re not even apologizing for it.
Comprised of two of our favorite independent acts (Simon Curtis and Ro “Wolfy” Danishei), the electric-pop duo wander through an old-school arcade, pining for the throwback romance of yesteryear: “Sex will forever be on our minds/ But, I want the real thing, just like an ’80s movie.”
Good thing they stumble onto Zoltar Speaks from 1988’s “Big” — that dude’s got all the answers. Didn’t he advise on Iran-Contra???? Really wanna say he did…
One thing leads to another, and soon Wrathschild are sprinting through the streets, Simon in an adorable, pin-covered onesie and Wolfy in an intergalactic bodysuit. NGL, we totally had “Misery“-level sympathy pains when we saw her running in platforms, but she looks like she knows what she’s doing.
The clip culminates with a summoning of sorts, soon followed by a dance party on the beach — and in the arcade, and in a Jeep. (It looks like SOMEBODY’s enjoying her pink-tipped weave.) If Wrathschild’s goal is to pump the world full of their infectious brand of pop optimism — or “Unf*ck the world,” as one of Simon’s pins says — then mission accomplished. Now, June? C’MERE.
