Plankton Waves: Cloud Caravan Video

Luxembourg electropop duo and FZB favorites Planton Waves, aka Natalie Pickar and Michel Flammant, are back with an ultra-interesting track and video Cloud Caravan. Michel gives the backstory on it..."there won't be an english version of the song. the lyrics are an adaptation of the poem "die himmelsschlange" ("the sky snake") by the quite unknown german expressionist jakob van hoddis. he lived at the beginning of the 20th century and died in the second world war. the poem was written about 1912. " The track is dark and haunting and the video is packed with neo-expressionist imagery. One of the most creative things we've heard (and seen) in a while.
