Donkeyboy - Ambitions (new video and remixes!)
Oh Donkeyboy, how I love thee! Last year, many a traditional "pop-blogger" (along with my eclectical self), fell hard and fast for the Norwegian quintet and their mix of spunky electropop. Today, our love grows a little deeper and extremely more steadfast.
Mid-2009 saw the boys release a video for their single, Ambitions. The visuals documented a trip through Abicere Leprous, a fake new and fatal disease that is caused by giving up your, well, ambitions. You can watch the original flick here.
Now, the boys are back with a video that focuses more on their 80's synth-bed softness by paying tribute to the dancing erraticisms of the era. Featured chorus-vocalist, Linnea Dale*, also gets a healthy dose of screentime in the newly-released cinemascape.
* Linnea Dale, in case you were wondering, is only 18 years old, with the voice of someone well-trained and traveled beyond her years.
Makes you feel old, right? Well here's something to perk you up then, in the form of remixes of Ambitions from Jaynorth and Cosmic Dawn. They swoop, soar and are equally sensational.
