Exclusive Premier! New Music Video from AATS

Posted By on Mon, Feb 23, 2015 at 7:24 AM

Minneapolis synth pop group Aaron & The Sea have a knack for making immersive, heart thumping music videos. In fact, it was the video for their breakout hit "Deja Vudu" that really set interest in their band on fire back in 2012.

AATS's often haunting visual representation is enhanced by the fact that they pair cold, spine tingling synth rock/pop with artful poetry. This isn't the kind of stuff you're going to be singing with your friends as you roll down the highway on a summer afternoon; rather, it's the type of music that worms its way into your psyche and your secret thoughts. That's especially true if you've seen the music videos that accompany their music.

Today, the Source is lucky enough to have an exclusive premier of AATS's latest music video for the song "Cloak & Dagger" which appears on the band's new EP out March 3 featuring remixes of that song.

The video, which uses facial masks as a canvas for depicting human frailty and the resulting personality facades we create, uses scenes that easily invoke the senses; like a frozen corn field and in indoor pool that conjures up the sent of chlorine. It's another visceral offering from Aaron & The Sea.

Check out that video below as well as the one that started it all after the jump. Just a word of caution on that second video though; don't watch it alone in the dark.
