There we a lot of cool videos that premièred in 2011, but we fell in love with this year’s Best Video winner instantly, and so did everyone we showed it too.
Com Truise’s ‘Brokendate’ is a brooding slice of SynthWave that’s manages to be both robotic and soulful and it’s retro synth sound is perfectly matched by it’s Will Joines directed mini-movie accompaniment. Paying homage to every classic ‘80’s Dystopian Sci-Fi movie you can think of, the clip captures a Cyberpunk vibe effortlessly but keeps it’s tongue firmly in it’s cheek. It’s a video that makes us nostalgic for weekend VHS rentals.
