At first it is hard to tell what is going on in the video for “Heart Break Dance” by Invader Ace; the disjointed sounds coupled with the relatively plain visuals of tall grass in a field are more confusing than anything else. Then, it seems like there is a spaceship landing of some kind, and from the bright light that issues forth from it seem to emerge humanoid aliens, who start looking cautiously around the field. Next, it is daytime, and there is a group of normal teenagers playing, hanging out and riding their bikes. They come across a group of strange people in the woods near a field that are clearly the aliens we saw from earlier – they are dressed differently, and on top of that they move and act very strangely, as if they are awkward inside of their own skin. At the end their space ship, which looks like there is a rave inside, takes off and flies away before they can take the teenagers, whom they take captive, back with them.
Invader Ace plays dance music through old radios with tuba, guitar and drum machines.
