Blood Orange: Champagne Coast (Video Premiere)

By now you should all have taken our advice and checked out Blood Orange‘s delightful 2011 album Coastal Grooves, one of my favorites on it is Champagne Coast, and a few days ago a 90’s computer game inspired video was premiered.

In it a variety of animated girls dance their lives away in their bedrooms to the sexy tune. Over at the New York Times you can read an interview with Dev Hynes and the video director about the video and how it relates to the track.

D.H.: The song, as with every other piece of music I seem to make, is mostly about longing, creating scenarios in regards to an unrequited lover, plans that will never see fruition. So you’re left alone in your digitally created interior to dance by yourself.

What do you think of the video? Sound off in the comments!
