Mexico’s groovy genre-defying analog synth solo project and mega cat lovers, God Cat, drops a magical DIY video for the dance-inducing dark pop new single “Somos Magia | We are Magic” via independent Mexican label We are One Records.
A spiritual realm emerges within bright blinking and whimsical synth flourishes, cut with quirky computer-generated arcade bleeps, buzzing, swirling, and zipping around the atmospheric high energy vocals of ancient mysticism, passion, and harmony to rile rapid dancing beats and minimal piercing guitar strings around the soul-stirring lyrical poetry left whirling in a depth defying electronic funnel of mercurial delight.
Keen editing skills craft an immersive video from the 1898 silent film, “Une Homme de Tete (A Man of Heads)” by the father of special effects, French director, writer, and actor Georges Melies. Scenes of spinning cloned heads cleverly intersect with an evocative devotional interpretation cast in dramatic red lights, shape-shifting shadows, and, of course, an enormous cat to evoke feelings of fear, fervour, and comic laughs from the edgy overlay performance.
