Today in music videos: M83 gets creepy with telekinetic kids in "Midnight City"
If the movies have taught us anything, it's that there's nothing creepier than a kid with special (and possibly murderous) powers. French synth-pop outfit M83 harnesses this unique kind of creep factor in the video for "Midnight City," one of the best songs off the group's sprawling new album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, which is due in stores tomorrow. In the clip, some adorable lil tykes are lured away from what appears to be a home for telekinetic kids, and led to a rendezvous with a mysterious force in the sky. It's a little bit Carrie, a little bit Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, and pretty riveting. [via Gorilla Vs. Bear]
