Pleasure Curses – Lust video

On a recent episode of our DC music podcast, we speculated on the nature of the “audio/visual concept release” of Pleasure Curses’ new EP Pure/Lust on Prince George Records. Turns out that in addition to a limited edition cassette and lots of bonus ephemera, the synthpop duo created music videos to accompany the tracks, and “Lust” is the first out of the gate. Jahn Alexander Teetsov directs this strange montage of robot hands playing with a number of brilliantly blue objects, some musically and some rather lustfully. Pleasure Curses join another great synthpop duo Champagne Fever to open a show Saturday night at DC9 for New York’s Tei Shi, so don’t miss out!

Pleasure Curses – PNKLKR video

Pro tip: If you want to make a music video that really stands out and endures as captivating visual art, go French. Pleasure Curses, the young synthpop duo of Jahn Alexander Teetsov and Evan Maxwell Grice, collaborated with Parisian director Guillaume Thuillier on an absolutely stunning music video for their newest single PNKLKR (FREE download alert!). I don’t want to talk too much about the video before you watch it, but it definitely reminded me of some of Michel Gondry’s best videos like Come Into My World and Sugar Water. Washington CityPaper recently featured this song in their One Track Mind column, so head there to find out more about the music. Clear your late Saturday night schedule to see them play live at Comet Ping Pong playing with DC’s Motion Lines and Soft Metals from the west coast.
