Video: For Esmé – Make a Sound

ForEsme_SoundThanks to YouTube, Don Johnson’s video for “Heartbeat” lives on, as does his Miami Vice costar Philip Michael Thomas’s strobe-shrouded demigod turn in “Just the Way I Planned It”. Not much has changed since the image-obsessed ’80s thanks to social media. The stars of today with their micro-curated lives stand as a reminder that they have it better than us.

Calling bullshit on this fact of life last year with “Make a Sound,” Toronto’s For Esmé throw it back to the days of pastel suits with a VHS-worthy video sendup for the band’s single.

My pick for this week’s Friday Night Video Fight, you can watch the video for “Make a Sound” below and purchase Sugar on vinyl or digital format via Bandcamp.
