Furniteur – Secret Plans video

Fiendishly cool synthpop act Furniteur just released their second music video, and it is a sight to behold. Director Andy Fernandez connected with Furniteur’s singer Brittany Sims about using the single “Secret Plans” in a documentary trailer, and Fernandez jumped at Sim’s suggestion of a music video collaboration. Fernandez and producer Miles Jackson decided to film a young DC skateboarding crew called the Shaw Boyz. The creepy white faces were from a sci-fi concept abandoned early on, but they strangely echo Sims’s face mask in the single’s cover art. I love how the sinister bassline of this song fits with the eerie, menacing skaters careening through the streets of DC, while Sims’s ethereal voice floats above it all. Grab Furniteur’s four song self-titled EP on Prince George Records digitally or on super-hip cassette.

Furniteur – Modern Love video

Visual artist Brittany Sims‘s new music project Furniteur will appeal to fans of synthpop in general and BRETT in particular, as BRETT-ers Kevin Bayly and Mike Toohey produced the woozy, 80s-drenched debut track “Modern Love”. The new single, already hyped earlier this week by DC Music Download and Bandwidth, gets an extra push today with a music video assembled by Sims herself of footage of 80s technology and beautiful women, the chocolate to “Modern Love”s peanut butter. Look for Furniteur’s debut EP soon on Bayly’s Prince Georges Records, and make your way to The Dunes Saturday night for their first live show ever, supporting Pleasure Curses and the album release of post-punkers Cavale.
