Consistently incredible video director Jamie Harley pulls a classic trick in his Dummy-premiered take on Solar Year’s “Magic Idea,” juxtaposing the Montreal duo’s slurpy, soft sonics with slo-mo shots of enamored fans at another band’s festival gig. (The Embassy had a similar, cheeky video a few years back, for “Lurking (With a Distance).”) The song features on Solar Year’s recent single for No Fear of Pop’s Stratosfear Records. Download their FADER mix, too, and check out some European tour dates beneath it.
