Published Jun 11, 2013Apparently the "Better Days" that Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros were talking about in their recently released single of the same name took place in the '80s, at least judging by the breakdancin' new video for the cut.
Despite that fuzzy VHS copyright warning at the beginning of the clip, the nostalgic video for the uplifting pop number brings together snippets from iconic dance flicks Breakin 2 Electric Boogaloo, Beat Street and the NY culture doc Paris Is Burning that showcase fancy footwork and angular, old-school outfits in clubs, on the rooftops and from hospital beds.
You can bust your own moves along with the pros while streaming the video down below. As Sharpe puts it, "we don't have to talk / let's dance."
"Better Days" comes from the Magnetic Zeros' forthcoming self-titled LP, which hits stores July 23 through Community Music.
