Empire of the Sun- Standing on the Shore

By now you know I love the Australian answer to MGMT in Empire of the Sun. And of course, there would be no way in hell this duo would let the other American bred duo outshine them on the video-spectacle scale, as MGMT just released a rather puzzling, scary, then scary-funny, then animated video version of their song for the uplifting and wonderful "Kids." (the singer's eye makeup is very EOTS-esque!!)

You decide who wins the battle of theatrics. You know where my vote lies (hint: its the title of the post). Here, everyone wins in 70's disco, marlin-women and aboriginal landscapes.
