[Editor’s Note: Two major trends have emerged in the recent history of new media: 1) Music videos are the new music and 2) YouTube is the new MTV.

Ever wake up from a night of partying and feel like you’ve lost something? Maybe it’s an object. Or a person. It might be something intangible, like how you really need to get through the next day, or maybe it’s just a thing that’s missing. It could be an emotion that you can’t put your finger on. But you know it’s out there. Somewhere.
Well I’ve been there. And just in case you haven’t, the guys from Antennas Up have put together a brand new video that might shed some light on that complex state of internal affairs that I think I’ll refer to as “Unicorning.”
It’s when you wake up as if you’re in some Kafka-esque reality where your head doesn’t feel like your own and you search high and low for something and you’re not actually sure what that something is, but when you find it, it makes you about as happy as you would be if you were a heteronormative male unicorn in a room full of ballons partying with conventionally attractie females. At least that’s my read on it.
‘Coming On‘ is the newest video from the Kansas City indie rockers and it feels like a pretty accurate representation of what the group is going for in all of their endeavors, because if you can’t have some fun while pretending to be a unicorn then you probably have no place in pop music.
It’s a whimsical party with a bit of magic that perfectly fits the up beat vibe and if you dig it, be sure to download (free stream also available) Antennas Up’s new album, The Awkward Phase, here and check out some tour dates here.
