It’s not quite the “Money For Nothing” sequel we’ve been waiting three decades for, but Paul Roper’s “Plantlife” video does manage to bring the Cold Showers single to life with crude yet compelling CGI techniques that wouldn’t look out of place on an old episode of Liquid Television. Or at the very least, a future installment of The Sims, set to a sleek cold-wave score that says it all about the LA band’s refined pop sensibilities. Here’s what Roper had to say about his fatalist tale of horticulture gone horribly wrong:
A limited white vinyl 7” of “Plantlife” hits shops on August 14th through the Berlin label Aufnahme + Wiedergabe. The LP it’s been lifted from (Matter of Choice) arrives two weeks later through Dais.
