The influence of the Killers’ retro-rock has reached Glasgow, Scotland. There, “indie-rock” group Glasvegas crafts yester-pop full of chiming guitars and pounding drums. The video for the first single from their forthcoming album evokes bygone days. The analog cinematography evokes The Old Grey Whistle Test, an old British music TV show. The appropriation of vintage BBC—warm stage lighting, odd camera zooms, glitchy edits—is likely nostalgic for Brits who grew up watching post-punk acts. Everyone else may wonder: Why’s this so janky? ★★★☆
