Honesty may be the best policy, but lies make for more lasciviously harrowing music videos. Take this electropop voyage from Is Tropical, for example. We find vultures and a terrific beat, sure, but also a commentary on self-doubt, self-control, sexual liberation, sexual slavery, the dangers of consumerism, flamingos, fear of aging, the lack of positive male role models, the point of delayed gratification, modern martyrdom, the military-industrial complex, the cult of Debbie Harry, the quest for identity, the real presence of the divine, the urban-rural divide, the rise of the leisure class, the purpose of pleasure, and eagles, just to name a few things. What do you find? You can be honest. Or, don’t.
