Declan McKenna 'Be An Astronaut (live)' by Huse Monfaradi
Huse Monfaradi directs a splendidly vibrant, and wittily retro live visual for Declan McKenna's Be An Astronaut.
With a single line of silver glitter drawn on his face, the indie-rock prodigy sets aside the more heavy surrealism seen in his official videos, and goes all-in with a dynamic live performance of old school glam rock.
Paying homage to iconic artists in the genre - particularly Hunky Dory-era Bowie and early Elton - the track is visualised through a lively and unabashed performance from McKenna, backed up by a handful of equally animated, and appropriately styled musicians.
The location is excellent too, toeing the line between derelict and palatial. And Monfaradi's canny use of camera and lenses seals the early '70s vibe, and works well in the themes of dreams vs reality that run through the lyrics.
