"The Beginning of the Twist": The Futureheads Take On Me!

My trusty and faithful source just tipped me off about the newest video from The Futureheads (their third album "This Is Not the World" is being released online only May 26th!). From the same guys who brought us probably the most amazing Kate Bush cover ever (with Purple Crush coming in second), "The Beginning of the Twist" is a little less barbershop quartet and a little more British punk than what I'm used to hearing from my fave Sunderlanders. But it didn't need a lot of getting used to, and I just love this A-Ha-esque video ("Take on Me" was my all-time favorite when I was little and I think they did a brill job referencing it without doing a copy-cat modern remake). Ear worm and eye candy in one for sure!
