Though Young Magic currently resides in Brooklyn, the electronic collective’s roots emerge from Australia and Indonesia. This worldliness seeps from the music the three-piece creates, which layers phantasmic vocals, romping synthesizers and tribal percussion.
The music video for the band’s latest single, “You With Air,” off this year’s debut, Melt, takes place in the group’s new home of New York as director Sam Henry uses a split screen effect and black and white film to create an even more eerie effect as a limber dancer makes his way through Brooklyn.
The split screen gives the clip a surreal feeling that makes for on-point imagery for the song’s ethereal nature. Watch the video for “You With Air” below.
