There’s nothing comforting about music videos depicting plane crashes. The Catherine Wheel video for Waydown (1995) always spooked me â€“ that smiling stewardess seriously gives me the heebie-jeebies.
Now, enter RJD2 and his new video for the song A Spaceship for Now, from his new album The Colossus. It’s slightly more abstract and cinematic than Waydown, but no less unnerving. In it, a stewardess â€“ another one wearing an eerie smile (not to mention a gas mask) â€“ attempts to rebuild a plane from the wreckage in what looks like a post-apocalyptic, seaside setting. (Sound familiar?)
Remember: RJD2 arrives in Phoenix on April 4 â€“ presumably by van â€“ to play the Rhythm Room with Busdriver and Happy Chichester. Tickets are $15.
