The Avalanches 'Frankie Sinatra' by Fleur Fortune (Fleur & Manu)
A momentous wait demands a momentous video. It's been 16 years since the last time The Avalanches released new music. Now its finally arrived, it was beholden on Fleur Fortune (from Fleur & Manu) to produce something substantial for the first video. And Fleur has certainly delivered.
The video for Frankie Sinatra takes a Harmony Korine-esque depiction of the Southern United States as a carnival of strange, and then runs with it at full speed towards full-on surrealism.
Everyone here sips a drink that glows as if irradiated - the effects of which blur the lines of perception. Dogs operate heavy machinery, food comes to life and fishermen find themselves in a Vietnam War flashback, complete with assault weapon/brass instrument hybrids.
It's a rich tapestry of great looking, funny scenes, and a seemingly massive logistical undertaking. Everything down to the casting has been executed meticulously. A music video worthy of the band who brought us the crazy genius of Frontier Psychiatrist.
