Weird little girls run amok in 50s nuclear-threatened American suburbia in an arresting combination of colourful scratchy 2D and slick monochrome 3D, while Lucy and the Teenage Monster thrash around on the soundtrack. Result is one very cool video indeed from Stockholm-based duo David Strindberg and Johan Bring, aka PUNX.

"We like doing most parts ourselves, as for this video we spent a couple of months doing it all," explains David. "Our intention is to do all the fun stuff ourselves and leave the rest to someone else. Dance Steps though was a thrill making all the way through.

"Our original idea was that someone had been drawing bizarre evil stuff on old photos of a nice 50s suburban area. We went through a few styles, including having the backgrounds in a 50s color graded style, and the girls painted in aquarell, but ended up with these colorful sketchy girls on black and white background."
