the sound of arrows: wonders.

Swedish 80s dream-pop duo The Sound of Arrows just tweeted the link to their latest video. “Wonders”, fresh of their just-released, highly-buzzed about debut full length album “Voyage,” delivers everything we’ve already come to crave from them. Long story short, they sound like unicorns playing synths riding through space dust, on their way to watch The Neverending Story with David Bowie. While drinking Crystal Pepsi… sitting on a couch made of clouds and dollar-store laser beams. Walkin’ on sunshine, and don’t it feel good.

I’ve had a mild to mildly unhealthy obsession with them since falling crazy in love with their video for “M.A.G.I.C.”

And, um, no big deal, but I’m now tweeting with them about the video. Day = made. Oh, and if you’re looking for me, I’ll be busy being friends with them now. Stefan and Oskar are stand-up gentlemen.

the sound of arrows + mattias johansson: into the clouds.

I love the video for The Sound Of Arrows’ “M.A.G.I.C.” Now they’re back with this Mattias Johansson-directed vid for “Into the Clouds.”

Want to feel like you’re flying? Want to believe that clouds really are made of cotton candy and that heaven is the place where all your dreams come true? Want to remember what it felt like watching “The Neverending Story” on VHS and drinking Kool-Aid till your teeth turned the colour of your tongue and intergalactic space adventurer and unicorn herder still seemed like a viable career choice?

Then watch this video. It looks like what beautiful feels like.

I need this album to come out. I need it right now.

the sound of arrows: m.a.g.i.c.

The only thing that would have made this radder is Falcor. But that’s the only thing. It’s already got skywhales and glitterbombs and feels like the last day of school. If Skittles pouring into a bowl made music, it would sound like this. We should make babies watch this. And old people who think the world owes them something just because they’re old. And convicts. And bouncers.


This little joytrip is a mini-vid for The Sound Of Arrows‘ single “M.A.G.I.C” And magic it is, people… magic it is.
