David Knight - 19th Dec 2013

Astronomy meets astrology meets Metronomy in Edouard Salier's gorgeous video for the mesmerizing I'm Aquarius.

There's a healthy nod to the sci-fi book cover art of Chris Foss, and a quaintly retro view of all things intergalactic, as Edouard and his team takes Metronomy mainman Joe Root to the planet of his dreams, via a combination of in-camera and digital effects.
