Seekae's video clip for Turbine Blue is one of the best this year

Shot in the same place as famous scenes from Terminator 2 and Grease.

About a month ago Seekae released their first new original song in a very long while, and Turbine Blue was a very special return from the trio. Meditative, melancholic, beautiful and euphoric at times, it finds the group completely at ease with the addition of vocals to their sound (promise this is the last time I'll ever even mention it, because at this point it is moot).

A couple of weeks ago saw the release of the song's video clip, and while normally it's too late to bother posting (two weeks is like 2 years in internet time), it's a video clip worth talking about. Directed by arguably one of Australia's finest music video directors, Kris Moyes, I've got don't know how they got to this final product in concepting the clip, but I'm incredibly happy they did.

I don't even care that it's set in the same drain thingy as from films like Terminator 2, that fact just serves as an interesting tidbit to the visuals on offer, and I can't even explain what it is about a bunch of random people singing along to Turbine Blue that is so affecting. It just is. I barely even watch full video clips these days, it'll generally be a skip through, 'yeah that's cool', type deal. I've revisited this video clip probably 10 times. Pressed play, put headphones on and watched it from start to finish, every time.

It's beautiful, and it's a prime example of two creative forces at the peak of their powers. Enjoy:
