“Have you ever jacked-in? Have you ever wire-tripped?” Ralph Fiennes had some unintentionally hilarious questions in the campy cyberpunk film Strange Days. And EMA has some cooler answers in “Satellites,” her new video co-directed with Leif Shackelford. To the tune of her growling new electro-pop style, Erika M. Anderson straps on a headset and gets carried off into a dystopic virtual reality. Other than the part where she gets transformed into pixelled shards, it’s a lot like our own world: creepy plants, hands everywhere, and smoke is still very stylish.
EMA’s new album The Future’s Void is out April 8th via Matador; pre-order here.
