Andrew Austin – Disappear

[jwplatform O6xfNTPI-Pqiywodl]

West Side Story undergoes a gender swap when rival lady gang members brandish switchblades to the beat of some hypnotic vocals. The Dreamers, a gang dressed rough and gritty, draws the violent attention of the So Real Crew. It doesn’t take long before fists are flying just as fast as the hoodlums’ long wavy hair. Their battle takes them from the brightly lit surface and down into a deserted subway platform where the violence only escalates.

Soon after a few rough tussles, the ladies’ aggression transforms into a set of hypnotic dance moves that will make you want to get up and cheer. Toronto based and Sarnia born singer Andrew Austin’s lyrics communicate a frustrating nostalgia that tries desperately to remember music just outside his memory. Combine that with the classic film tropes placed in an unmistakably modern setting and this video is certain to play with the viewer’s own memory. But rest assured, this is one music video that to disappear from the mind anytime soon.
