To follow up with the MP3 release of “Blue Sky Action,” Above & Beyond have recruited director, Ken Clark, to continue the theme of sci-fi that he had laid out earlier in his visuals to “Sticky Fingers.”
In this video, we follow a story line that follows a similar story line of Mad Max mixed with Wall-E. To know more about where the guys of Above & Beyond came from, here’s what Tony McGuinness, 1/3 of Above & Beyond, had to say about the video.
Wall-E is the last man standing on an earth rendered uninhabitable by pollution and fierce sunlight.He owns every material thing imaginable, but something is missing; he’s lonely. When the clouds part unexpectedly his perspective changes, and he decides to risk everything for adventure and love, and so begins his blue sky getaway.
The epic sounds of the melody alongside the barren desert acts as the perfect story telling combination. As the vocals echo “king for a day,” the song becomes more progressive and uplifting as the protagonist of the video also becomes more optimistic.
