Passion Pits new video for Little Secrets goes hyper-literal on the chorus (higher and higher and higher ), taking us on a blissed-out trip through outer space.
This is also a good reminder to re-watch the videos obvious reference point Keir Dullea in the classic Star Gate sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey, which special effects are created through an expensive and time-intensive process called slit-scan photography.
Heres something to try start the 2001 clip and leave the sound up as you watch the video for Little Secrets. The sound effects used in the film (no music, really, just I guess, space-type sounds?) add a certain cold edge to the ordinarily bright-and-cheery track. And the colors oh, god, the colors.
